KZSN's Rick Regan Does Hunger Strike For Kansas Seniors
February 24, 2010 at 7:36 AM (PT)
CLEAR CHANNEL Country KZSN/WICHITA, KS PM driver ROCKIN RICK REGAN began his KANSAS HUNGER STRIKE on FRIDAY (2/19). REGAN is currently traveling across KANSAS in an RV talking to media and residents about the plight of senior citizens going hungry because of a cut in state funding of over $1 million for senior nutrition and attempting to persuade legislators to reinstate the lost funding in the 2011 budget. REGAN is eating a meal a day with a senior food provider.
The strike will end in TOPEKA on FEBRUARY 25th where state legislators are invited to attend an educational luncheon provided by KANSAS COMMUNITY NUTRITIONS SERVICES.
