Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: Joel Berg

“There’s an old African proverb: ‘when the elephants fight, the grass loses.’ In Washington’s sequestration battle, when the elephants and donkeys fight, low-income Americans are the grass."

—Joel Berg, executive director of the New York City Coalition Against Hunger and a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress.
