CEO of Children’s Hunger Alliance Announces Retirement
Listen to the Story
After more than a dozen years at the helm of a statewide program to feed children in need, Bill Dolan has announced he will retire in March. Dolan is the CEO of Children’s Hunger Alliance in Columbus. He says about 500,000 young people in Ohio live in poverty, and poverty is the main reason children are hungry.
Dolan says 100,000 Ohio children suffer chronic hunger. 400,000 young people are at risk of hunger toward the end of the month when there is no food in their home, if a parent is laid off or during summer months when there are no school breakfasts or lunches.
