Albuquerque's Nancy Pope Among Finalists for Hunger Award

The Conagra Foods Foundation has just chosen Nancy Pope, director of the New Mexico Collaboration to End Hunger, as one of five finalists for its Champions Against Child Hunger award. 

Nancy is competing against worthy candidates from Ohio, Texas, Nebraska and New York for this award.  But we want her to get the award, not only because it would recognize all the good work she has done in Albuquerque and the rest of the state, but because it also brings some new grant money home.

The grand prize winner of the Champions Against Child Hunger contest will receive:

- a three day/two night trip for two to New York, NY
- a tour of the Food Network studios (subject to availability)
- $1,000 cash as a reward for his or her advocacy against child hunger
- $5,000 donation by ConAgra Foods Foundation made in their name to Share Our Strength, Feeding America, Feeding America food bank, or a recognized charitable hunger relief organization of the finalist's choice

So please vote for Nancy by clicking on this link. (Be sure to scroll down if you need to. Nancy was listed fourth on the ballot on Feb. 24).  You have until March 19 to cast your votes, and you can participate one time each day per computer.  

"You can vote...once at work and once at home," says Sarah Newman of the New Mexico Collaboration to End Hunger.
Not only that.  Please urge all your friends, colleagues and family to vote too. 

And every time you vote ConAngra Foods will donate $1 to Feeding America. 

By the way, here's what the ballot says about her:
