Access to enough food is necessary to live an active and healthy lifestyle, yet there are over 47,000 people who are food insecure in Washtenaw County, including college students. Join us on November 19 from 12-1:00 pm to learn about this issue with multiple organizations from the community that are dedicated to equitable food access.

We will have a discussion regarding food insecurity in Washtenaw County with representatives from Food Gatherers and U-M's Maize and Blue Cupboard. They will discuss their organizations and the multiple ways in which the community can engage with this issue. Come learn how to get involved on campus and in the larger community, volunteering with local organizations and learning to advocate for better policy.

Lunch will be served. Please bring questions to engage with the presenters.
