Images from Hunger 101 Workshop at Jewish Community Center

Here are some photographs and videos from the Hunger 101 Workshop on Sunday, Sept. 18, at the Jewish Community Center. About 50 people attended the workshop to hear Bill Jordan, Senior Policy Advisor and Government Relations Officer at New Mexico Voices for Children. Mr Jordan spoke about hunger, poverty, tax policy and the budget. 

Workshop participants were also given the opportunity to write letters to state legislators and the U.S. Congress and also to learn how to set up a Hunger 101 workshop in their own congregation.
