FRAC improves the nutrition, health, and well-being of people struggling against poverty-related hunger in the United States through advocacy, partnerships, and by advancing bold and equitable policy solutions. In this role, we:

  • lead efforts to identify and communicate the connections among poverty, hunger, and their root causes;
  • conduct research to document the extent of hunger, its impact, and effective solutions;
  • seek stronger federal, state and local public policies that will reduce hunger;
  • monitor the implementation of laws and serve as a watchdog of programs;
  • provide coordination, training, technical assistance, and support on nutrition and anti-poverty issues to a nationwide network of advocates, service providers, food banks, program administrators and participants, and policymakers; and
  • conduct public information campaigns to help promote changes in attitude and policies.
