PROCLAMATION
National Hunger Awareness Day – June 5, 2007

WHEREAS, June 5th marks the sixth annual National Hunger Awareness Day, a day for everyone in the United States to unite to raise awareness about hunger and to show support of ending hunger--one of the most solvable social issues in this country; and

WHEREAS, the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano distribute approximately eight million pounds of food annually serving 82,000 hungry people every month through its valuable network of 184 emergency food providers, community partnerships and direct distributions; and

WHEREAS, hunger affects even the least likely of victims, including adults who are caring for a family member, hard working families with children who have experienced a sudden job loss and seniors living on a fixed income who are forced to make choices between medicine and food; and

WHEREAS, no one should go hungry or be forced to make choices between food and basic necessities like rent, utilities and medicine; and

WHEREAS, the Food Bank of Contra Costa & Solano, a member of America's Second Harvest—The Nation’s Food Bank Network, has joined this national effort to build greater awareness of the growing hunger crisis by inviting our community partners, policy makers and the media to join us on National Hunger Awareness Day, June 5, 2007 at our Concord warehouse.

NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that we, the City Council of the City of Brentwood, do hereby proclaim this 5th day of June 2007 as Hunger Awareness Day in the City of Brentwood and do hereby thank the Food Bank of Contra Costa & Solano for its service and commitment to the citizens of Brentwood for over 30 years.

Dated this 22nd day of May 2007
