Louisiana Anti-Hunger Coalition

The Louisiana Anti-Hunger Coalition was co-founded by Feeding Louisiana and Louisiana Budget Project to identify policy solutions to Louisiana's food insecurity epidemic, to improve the administration of federal nutrition program in the state, and to develop diverse coalitions of Louisianans interested in decreasing hunger statewide.

POLICY GOALS

  • Eliminate barriers to food assistance in Louisiana

  • Make food assistance benefits more adequate

  • Fight efforts to reduce benefits or exclude participants

PROGRAM ACCESS GOALS

  • Amplify the voices of participants in Louisiana's anti-hunger programs

  • Increase racial equity in food assistance program delivery

  • Make it easier for people to apply for food aid by improving systems and applications

 

POLITICAL GOALS​

  • Build a stronger voice for anti-hunger advocates at the state level in Louisiana

  • Ensure broad and diverse representation of voices within our coalition

  • Develop and support more anti-hunger champions in the state legislature

Every person in Louisiana, regardless of their life circumstances, deserves access to a healthy diet. The goal of the Louisiana Anti-Hunger Coalition is to promote laws, policies and practices that fight hunger and food insecurity in our state, so that no Louisianan goes to bed hungry or eats an inadequate diet simply because they can't afford enough food.
