Join P&P for a discussion on food insecurity and the food challenges facing Vermont communities, with special guests Jenna O’Donnell of Hunger Free Vermont, Anne Gleason from the Mary Johnson Children’s Center, and Lily Bradburn with HOPE’s food shelf and gleaning programs.
Jenna will talk about some of the policy challenges impacting food and nutrition programs, and the ways communities around Vermont are mobilizing to meet them. Anne will discuss the work of the MJCC School Age Programs toward meeting the nutritional needs of Addison County’s children and their families. Lily will talk about the work of HOPE’s food shelf and gleaning programs, trying to meet the needs of our neighbors who are facing food insecurity in their daily lives.
Share your experiences, reflect on your work and consider ways forward in meeting these most critical needs in our community!
