Kansas Hunger Fast
Ambassador Tony Hall, Executive Director of The Alliance to End Hunger, an organization that develops innovative partnerships among our members; political commitment among our leaders; and global connections among groups working to end hunger worldwide, will be embarking on a water-only fast starting March 28, 2011. In 1993, then-Congressman Tony Hall fasted for 22 days in response to budget cuts that would have had a devastating impact on poor people at home and around the world. As a result of that fast, the Congressional Hunger Center was founded. Today, nearly 20 years later, Tony Hall is fasting again, provoked by similar budget cuts currently under consideration by Congress. Numana, Inc., a non-profit hunger relief organization based in El Dorado, KS, will be heading up the effort to raise awareness of this issue in Kansas, by providing a petition that will be presented to Ambassador Hall as an act of solidarity with his mission. This petition is in no way binding, nor will sensitive information collected be released to any organization outside of Numana. Only the names of participants will be released, and participants may also sign "anonymous" if they wish. For more information on the fast, you can visit hungerfast.org to see how to more specifically be involved.
