HARRISBURG – Since 2008, the PA Legislative Hunger Caucus – a bipartisan group of state lawmakers – has been involved in outreach initiatives to raise awareness of hunger in the Keystone State. One of the more visible projects of the caucus is the Capitol Hunger Garden. Located on the state Capitol grounds between the Main Capitol Building and Ryan Office Building, the garden provides food that is given to those in need. Beaver County Sen. Elder Vogel, who chairs the state Senate Agriculture & Rural Affairs Committee, said the Hunger Garden provided over 700 pounds of produce which was donated to Harrisburg’s Downtown Daily Bread to help feed the hungry. Vogel also gave the results of results of the Hunger Action Month Food Drive which was held in September. The Food Drive resulted 433 items and an additional 500 pounds of non-perishables.
