The annual Hunger Advocacy Workshop will be held May 4 in the John Knox Room of the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary in East Liberty.

The workshop, titled “Better Nutrition, Better Tomorrow,” will offer advocacy training on hunger-related issues at local and international levels. The event, set from 9 a.m. to noon, is free and open to the public, but registration is required.

Presenters will include Margaret Tran, regional organizer for Bread for the World, and Mim Seidel, a registered dietitian at Chatham University’s Falk School of Sustainability and Environment.

Tran will speak on legislative efforts, and Seidel will speak on “Nutrition and the First Thousand Days: Building Blocks for Success.” There also will be a panel discussion on letter-writing campaigns to Congress.

The workshop is sponsored by the Southwest Pennsylvania Bread team, a regional chapter of Bread for the World, an ecumenical, nonpartisan Christian nonprofit, and Christian Associates of Southwest Pennsylvania.

To register for the workshop at 616 N. Highland Ave., visit or call Joyce Rothermel at 412-780-5118.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
