McGovern, Quinn dine to mark National Hunger Awareness Day

June 8, 2006


Former Senator and current “got breakfast?” spokesperson George McGovern (D-S.D.) joined City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and schoolchildren at P.S. 93 on National Hunger Awareness Day, June 6, to call attention to free school breakfast programs.

Quinn called on her fellow council members to join her in eating with children that day, and 27 heeded her request.
