Since 2008, my career has been focused on ending hunger in America. How can 49 million people be going hungry in a country that throws away 35 million tons of food each year? Through my work at the River Bend Foodbank, the Iowa Food Bank Association, Feeding Illinois, the Illinois Commission to End Hunger, and Feeding America, we are working toward a 10-year goal of feeding everyone in need.
