Our Work: Advocacy and Education

Over the years, the primary focus of the coalition has shifted to Advocacy and Education of Elected Officials. Every year the Alaska Food Coalition travels to Juneau for our annual meeting and fly-in to the capitol. Usually around 35-40 coalition members attend this energizing event to share information about hunger across the state, learn about programs, policies, and tactics to improve hunger outcomes, and to educate the legislature on hunger in Alaska. The Alaska Food Coalition has worked on many different issues and initiatives over the years including, but not limited to:

  • School Meal Bills
  • SNAP Outreach & Administrative Advocacy
  • Senior Benefits
  • Nutritional Alaskan Foods for Schools
  • Hunger in Alaska studies with Feeding America
  • Reversing the Drug Felon Ban for SNAP
  • Securing SNAP Emergency Allotments during the 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic
