A Community Leader and Stakeholder Conversation
September is Hunger Action Month, a time when communities across the country mobilize to engage in meaningful activities and dialogue about one of our most pressing societal issues—food security.
The Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore is taking action by hosting a conversation on Thursday, September 26 starting at 5:30 p.m. that addresses the root causes of hunger and food insecurity in our community. Guest speakers will include Claire Babineaux-Fontenot, Chief Executive Officer of Feeding America; Dr. Ruth T. Jones Nichols, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore; and Dr. Harry Zhang, Associate Professor at Old Dominion University, who was charged with completing a research study in 2019 that explored the root causes of food insecurity in our community.
All event participants will receive a copy of the just-released report, “Hunger and Food Insecurity: The Root Causes and Consequences.”
If you’re interested in sharing in this unique opportunity to hear local and national perspectives on leading and emerging hunger-relief efforts, call our office at 757-627-8588 to learn more.
