Khadijah McQueen, The Capital Area YMCA’s very own Director of Food Access joined over 1,000 of her  fellow anti-hunger advocates in Washington, D.C., in late February where she was recognized for her outstanding contribution and advocacy for food access.

Khadijah shared her insights and knowledge where she lead a round-table discussion focusing on Year-Round Food Programs, After school Meals and Summer Meals.  This was a “can’t miss” networking opportunity that was content-rich, interactive and innovative.

Khadijah shared her advocacy methods and experience in the arena of helping better fight hunger in the community.  For more information on how you can partner with the Capital Area YMCA and increase access to proven and effective food access resources – school breakfast and lunch, after school and summer meals, and food assistance programs such as WIC, SNAP, contact Khadijah at kmcqueen@capitalymca.org.
