Mayor Presents "End Hunger" Awards

Mayor Don Wesely today presented the End Hunger Awards for 2000 to five area individuals who have made significant contributions to alleviating hunger in the city, state, nation and world:

This is the 15th year for the awards program in Lincoln. The U.S. Mayorís End Hunger Award was originally organized nationally in conjunction with World Food Day in October. When the national association was discontinued several years ago, Lincolnís World Food Day Committee and the Mayorís Office decided to continue the tradition.

Assisting Mayor Wesely in the presentations was Joanne Komenda of Community Action of Nebraska, who is Chair of the Mayorís End Hunger Award Committee.
