Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: Frances Moore Lappé

"No society has fulfilled its democratic promise if people go hungry... If some go without food they have surely been deprived of all power. The existence of hunger belies the existence of democracy."

—Frances Moore Lappé, author of Diet for a Small Planet and cofounder of three national organizations that explore the roots of hunger, poverty, and environmental crises.
