Hunger Relief Twitterers

We created this blog in 2007, with the goal of raising awareness of the issue of hunger and supporting the community of people and organizations involved in hunger relief.   Early on I was excited about the potential of social media tools bringing the hunger community together.  In early 2008, I created a list of those in the hunger community using Twitter. It had about twenty accounts.  It’s grown a bit since then–see below. Go follow these folks.   If  you’re interested in having your name attached, message me on Twitter @TysonFoods.

disclaimer–while I do try to keep the list current, it’s three years old, so there might be a few inactive accounts on here.    SOS primary account    Feeding America   Billy Shore, founder of Share Our Strength   Dan Michel–social media for Feeding America   Ellen Damaschino SOS OFL Hall of Fame Chef and blogger   Take Action on Hunger    Rock for Hunger    Feed Them With Music    David Davenport–CEO Second Harvest Food Bank, St. Joseph, Missouri      Lisa Goddard, Online Marketing Director, CAFB  John Lyon, Faith-Based Capacity Building-VISTA, CAFB r  JC Dwyer, Texas Food Bank Network, Statewide Advocacy Director,  San Antonio Food Bank Community Relations Manager   Michael Farver   Susan Adcock Photoblogger   Ed Nicholson, personal account     A.
