Hunger In The Farm To Fork Capital
More Less
Village Square Sacramento says
Join Capital Public Radio and Village Square Sacramento for a dynamic community conversation on May 13.

More than 6.2 million Californians don’t always know where their next meal is coming from. In Sacramento County 50,000 go hungry each day. These people are our neighbors, co-workers, friends and family members.

- Why are so many hungry in a region known for its agricultural abundance?
- How does hunger impact families, schools, businesses and communities?
- What do we want to do about it?

Community leaders from the front lines of food insecurity will share powerful public radio stories. You’ll meet with dozens of different neighbors to talk about why hunger is an important issue and how it impacts us all. Then you’ll have a chance to discuss local solutions and how you can get involved. Arrive early to stroll the information kiosks, see art and enjoy refreshments.

The event is free but registration is required: http://goo.gl/05WtES
