The Center for Hunger-Free Communities

This past Tuesday, I attended the President’s State of the Union address as the guest of Senator Robert Casey, Jr.   It was an experience I won’t forget.  I was honored to be there to represent all Americans who live with and try to break the cycle of poverty, including those in my community.
