Mayor Swearengin Calls for Fresnans to Continue Fight Against Hunger
01/05/2011

Mayor Ashley Swearengin today issued the following statement regarding the results of the Walmart Fighting Hunger campaign:

“All Fresnans can be proud of the way we took a stand against hunger in our community. All across the country, people now are aware that we’re a city that will do whatever it takes to make a difference for our community. The $100,000 prize is a welcome boost to our local efforts to fight hunger, and I’m confident that our local businesses and residents will continue to contribute time and resources to carry on the fight against hunger beyond this Walmart competition.”

Mayor Swearengin also encouraged residents to visit www.fightinghungerfresno.org, a website established by the Fresno Regional Foundation, to contribute to the local fight against hunger.
