Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Nearly 400 people got together in Savannah on Thursday to talk about the war on poverty.

The Economic Opportunity Authority held their annual luncheon at the Savannah Marriot.

It was the 49th year for the EOA, and the 50th anniversary of President Lyndon Johnson's declaration to fight the war on poverty.

This year's theme was Partners in the War on Poverty.

"Well, all of us can do something," said EOA Executive Director John Finney. "All of us can do something in our own small, special way. The main thing to understand is we do have a problem, and we need to work through it together."
