NASCAR Champ’s Car to Shine Lights on Hunger at NCSL’s Legislative Summit
Of the more than 51 million Americans who face the threat of hunger, 6 million are over the age of 60.
To help draw attention to the issue, NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion Jeff Gordon’s No. 24 Drive to End Hunger Chevrolet will be on display in the exhibit hall during the National Conference of State Legislatures’ (NCSL) 2011 Legislative Summit.
Combating hunger among seniors is a serious issue for many state legislators throughout the country. The NCSL Foundation Hunger Partnership links legislators, legislative staff and interested businesses to identify innovative and successful programs and develop ways to support legislators in their efforts to reduce hunger in America.
NCSL is proud to count AARP as one of its partners, and is honored to host the Drive to End Hunger racecar. To date, the drive has provided more than 2.6 million meals to food banks throughout the nation.
