(03/07/06) TRENTON ? The New Jersey Anti-Hunger Coalition is using a special display to make sure state lawmakers see the effects of poverty up close.
The display is made up of many photographs showing poverty-stricken people throughout New Jersey. According to anti-hunger advocates, the photos have been put up at the Capitol to remind legislators about the seriousness of the hunger issue. New Jersey Anti-Hunger Coalition members want a $10 million line item in the budget that will go toward helping food pantries.
Those involved with the display hope the photographs sway some lawmakers in their budget decisions.
