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.
