Clarke (NY), along with Congresswomen Sheila Jackson Lee (TX) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (FL) will host a dialogue with other Members of Congress to highlight what Congress has done to address the international food crisis, the situation in Haiti, and long-term solutions to this problem


“Everyone across the globe is being affected by the rising cost of food but none as severely as the people of Haiti,” said Rep.
