Host a lunch and learn at your business


Help strengthen our community by learning about food insecurity

Join Sheila Dion, Community Educator at Erin's Angels, for a Lunch & Learn about food insecurity.

The session will discuss the magnitude of food insecurity in CNY, food-assistance resources available throughout the area, and ways to advocate for food justice. Attendees will leave the presentation with an increased understanding of the problem of food insecurity, knowledge of SNAP and other food-assistance programs, and action steps they can take to support a future in which all people have the food they need to lead healthy lives.

Please don’t forget to bring your lunch!
