As Chief Government Relations Officer, Vince Hall leads the development and execution of Feeding America’s public policy, legislative and advocacy strategies to empower communities and improve food security. He helps lead efforts to end hunger by advocating for policy changes, supporting advocacy capacity across the network, increasing neighbor enrollment in public benefits and building partnerships that amplify our collective voice.

Prior to Feeding San Diego, Vince’s professional experience included serving as Chief of Staff for the Office of the Mayor, San Diego; Vice President, Public Affairs & Communication for Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest; and Staff Director for the Office of California Governor Gray Davis.
