With the COVID-19 pandemic having an outsized economic impact on families and communities in need, the demand for support to end food insecurity is at record levels around the country, with service providers bearing an outsized burden for meeting surging needs. But while the demand for support has dramatically increased, food insecurity is a legacy issue that has been impacting our community for decades. Join us as we use the film HUNGRY TO LEARN as a springboard for a conversation about solutions and support for those in need in our community.
