BOISE -- After a month-long campaign to fight hunger, March on Hunger held a rally Saturday on the Statehouse steps.

More than 350 people gathered to help raise awareness of an issue that affects one in six Idahoans: hunger.

For the past month, 16 local United Methodist Churches, together with several other agencies, gathered food donations in hopes of curbing hunger.

It's not acceptable for people to be hungry, said David Thompson with March on Hunger. We can argue politics, we can argue all that stuff, but food should never be a weapon. You should never have to worry where your next meal is coming from.

Even though the rally culminated the month long drive, organizers say they won't stop marching on hunger until the problem is solved.
