JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Jackson Mayor Chokwe A. Lumumba will join more than 50 other mayors from across the nation to launch the Mayors Alliance to End Childhood Hunger, which is a nonpartisan coalition dedicated to end childhood hunger.
Major Lumumba stated, “No child should have to go hungry in this country – let alone Jackson. We believe all citizens deserve to be part of a dignity economy – one that recognizes basic human needs. That is why I stand with this coalition and support efforts to eliminate childhood hunger.”
The Alliance will partner with the national nonprofit Share Our Strength and its No Kid Hungry campaign.
