Group endorsed Hassan as a stronger food champion for New Hampshire and the 115th Congress

Today, the co-founders of Food Policy Action (FPA), an organization dedicated to educating the public about the votes their elected leaders take on critically important food issues, applauded Maggie Hassan on her win as the next U.S. Senator for New Hampshire.

“We congratulate Senator-elect Hassan on her win this week,” said Tom Colicchio, Food Policy Action Co-Founder, food advocate and chef. “Food matters in elections, and voters in New Hampshire made their voices heard for ‘no more rotten food policies’ – this win reflects that. We will continue to arm the public with information to hold their elected officials accountable for their food policy record.”

“Voters care about these issues and want to help fix our out of balance food system. Food is connected to every critical issue facing our nation, and how Members of Congress vote on related policies has a tremendous impact on our food system up and down the food chain. We congratulate Maggie Hassan for her win, and we look forward to working with her in the next Congress to change our food system for the better,” said Ken Cook, Food Policy Action Board Chairman and Co-Founder.
