Washington, D.C. —Bread for the World will honor Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) with a lifetime hunger champion award in recognition of her continued leadership on issues affecting hungry and poor people in the United States and around the world. The award will be given at a reception that is part of the organization’s 2016 Lobby Day on June 7.
“We are proud to honor Senator Stabenow for her ongoing commitment to ending hunger worldwide,” said Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World. “Our work would not be possible without the leadership and support of powerful anti-hunger champions in Congress.”
Stabenow was Chairwoman of the Senate Agriculture Committee and worked to protect domestic nutrition programs and improve international food aid programs in the Farm Bill, which was passed during her tenure as Chairwoman.
“We are appreciative of Senator Stabenow’s efforts on the Senate Agriculture Committee,” continued Beckmann. “She has helped put together a child nutrition bill in the Senate that if passed would help connect hungry children with meals they need to thrive.”
Lobby Day offers Bread for the World activists a unique opportunity to personally communicate with members of Congress and their staffers on hunger-related issues. Participants are encouraged to ask their members of Congress to support the reauthorization of the law that secures funding and determines policy for child nutrition programs.
In addition to Stabenow, Bread for the World will honor Rep. Sam Farr (D-CA), Rep. Kay Granger (R-TX), and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK).
