NLIHC Participates in House Committee Roundtable on Food Insecurity

House Rules Committee Chairman Jim McGovern (D-MA) held a roundtable on October 13 to examine family budgets and food insecurity in America. This event was the tenth in a series on food insecurity, with the goal of finding solutions to end hunger by 2030. Speakers included policy experts in health, transportation, and housing, including NLIHC’s Vice President of Public Policy Sarah Saadian. Sarah’s testimony focused on the intersection of hunger and housing instability for renters with the lowest incomes. “In order to end food insecurity, Congress must also end homelessness and housing poverty,” she said. “We must understand how central housing affordability is to other national priorities, including food security, healthcare, education and more.”
