Dawn Secor is the SNAP Policy Specialist at Hunger Solutions New York, a caring and informed voice for hungry New Yorkers. At Hunger Solutions New York we promote and achieve:

  • Awareness of hunger in your community.
  • Awareness about programs that address chronic and crisis hunger.
  • Full participation in nutrition assistance programs for all who are eligible.
  • Public policies that contribute to ending hunger.
  • Public awareness of the economic benefit of anti-hunger programs.

Dawn provides technical assistance around the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), facilitates the SNAP Network, and advocates on SNAP issues on the local, state, and federal levels.

She has been an anti-hunger advocate for over two decades working with communities to expand their capacity to provide their most vulnerable citizens with access to affordable, nutritious and culturally appropriate food. She started this journey working with a coalition of food panties in the 1980's and has continued on this path by working in statewide organizations focusing on improving access to federal nutrition assistance programs across NYS.

Dawn holds a B.A. in Public Communications from the College of St. Rose. She joined Hunger Solutions New York in 2007.
