Tweets from the Third #NMEndHunger Summit

The Third Annual End Hunger Summit was held in Albuquerque on Tuesday, Sept. 27.  As has been the case the last three years, the Non-MetroAreaAgency on Aging and the NorthCentralNewMexico EconomicDevelopmentDistrict were the main sponsors of the summit.

This year, the summit offered attendees the opportunity to participate in four round-table discussions on family and community, economic well-being, education and health issues related to poverty. The conclusions from the discussions were to be presented directly to Gov. Susana Martinez. However, she was unable to attend the summit at the last minute because she needed to plan for a special session with the State Legislature to discuss budget issues.

Here are some accounts of the summit via Twitter posts from Patty Keane, who was our eyes and ears at the summit.  The post also includes a couple of tweets from Ellen Teller and Alissa Barnes  We start with this tweet featuring a photo of (left to right) Louise Pocock of the New Mexico Center on Law and Poverty, Ellen Teller from the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC) in Washington and Patty Keane from the UNM Prevention Research Center.

Thanks @Ellen_Teller from @fractweets for coming to #NMHungerSummit to encourage us to be courageous in our #NM #hunger fight. #EndNMHunger
