Dorothy McAuliffe  

Former First Lady of Virginia; National Policy Advisor, Share Our Strength

Dorothy McAuliffe is the National Policy Advisor for Share Our Strength, working to promote policies that expand access to federal child nutrition programs. As First Lady of Virginia from 2014 to 2018, she engaged stakeholders across the Commonwealth to seek solutions that expand opportunities for national service, increase support for military-connected families, and empower community efforts linking locally grown food, education, health, and nutrition. Mrs. McAuliffe’s advocacy resulted in nearly $5 million over five years in the Governor’s budget to help schools adopt ‘Breakfast After the Bell’ programs. This historic investment, in conjunction with her leadership of the No Kid Hungry Virginia campaign, led to an increase of over 13 million school breakfasts served to Virginia students each year. Mrs. McAuliffe is a graduate of The Catholic University of America, and received her J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center. She recently completed a Fellowship at Georgetown's Institute of Politics and Policy at the McCourt School of Public Service, and serves as Chair of the No Kid Hungry Virginia campaign and as a Board Member for FoodCorps, a national nonprofit working to connect kids to healthy food in schools.
