Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: Bill Shore

"I think Americans basically want to do the right thing. There’s a lot of issues that we could struggle with for a long time. I don’t know how to solve the climate change problem by myself, I don’t know how to come up with a vaccine for AIDS, I don’t know how to, you know, end terrorism, but when it comes to hunger in this country we know the solutions because we have proven it in the past."

—Bill Shore, founder and chief executive officer of Share Our Strength

Izquierdo is a Philadelphia native whose firsthand experiences with hunger and poverty have made her an anti-hunger activist and nationwide speaker on the topic. Barbie has worked with Witness to Hunger in Philadelphia and appears in the documentary A Place at the Table (Laura Elizabeth Pohl/Bread for the World).
