John Edwards in NYC for Half in Ten

According to website,

John Edwards will be in East Harlem at noon to highlight a new national project he is heading called Half in Ten.

Edwards, the 2004 Democratic vice presidential candidate, will meet with feeding program customers/clients and local anti-hunger advocates, tour the pantry facilities and see a pilot project that enables people to apply online for food stamp benefits.

The pantry is located at 8 East 109th St., between Madison and Fifth, Manhattan.

JRE will first be on the Brian Lehrer show. Click here to listen.

Lehrer is asking very good questions, such as the impact of welfare reform of the Clinton administration.
