New Polling on Attitudes and Perceptions of Hunger and Public Policy
Date: Monday, October 27, 2014
Time: 3 p.m. ET
The Food Research and Action Center (FRAC) and Tyson Foods recently conducted a poll to measure attitudes and perceptions on hunger and its solutions among voters. Join us for a webinar to go over the findings, which show that Americans firmly believe hunger is a serious issue facing the nation, that its impact is widespread, and that government is key to solving it.
The data reveal striking findings on American attitudes and perceptions of hunger, showing that many people either have recently experienced hunger themselves or know someone who has.
Specifically, the call will discuss what the new polling data tell us, and how advocates and others concerned about hunger and its adverse effects can use this information to raise awareness of the problem, and knowledge of and support for nutrition programs, particularly child nutrition programs.
