CCIH Nutrition Advocacy

In 2017, CCIH began a pilot nutrition and food security advocacy project supported by the Eleanor Crook Foundation. CCIH will partner with Liberty University to conduct an on-campus nutrition and food security education and awareness-raising program for students, which will incorporate their faculty, local faith leaders, and outside subject matter experts. This will be followed by an advocacy event in Washington, DC focused on advocacy training for Liberty students, faculty and local faith leaders who will accompany them, and then meetings on Capitol Hill and with the Administration to educate these policymakers about the issues, as well as inform them how Christians view these critically important programs.
