“In serving on the board of Hopelink, an organization whose mission is to promote self-sufficiency for all members of our community to help people make a lasting change, I hear about the impact of families struggling to pay their bills and feed their children,” said Redmond Mayor Angela Birney. Community partners like Hopelink rely on federal, state, and local funding to address food security. By working with the Mayor’s Alliance, we use our collective voice and advocate for solutions to end child hunger.”
