Alexandria Food Insecurity Panel Discussion

Alexandria Food Insecurity Panel Discussion


Sun, Sep 19
9:30 am - 10:30 am


Food Insecurity continues to be a critical issue that impacts so many within our community, particularly those most vulnerable. A March 2021 Feeding America Report indicated that, “In 2019 – before the start of the pandemic – more than 35 million people, including nearly 11 million children, were food insecure. Feeding America projects that 45 million people, including 15 million children, may have experienced food insecurity in 2020, and 42 million people, including 13 million children, may experience food insecurity in 2021.” Please join us for this important Adult Education where we’ll hear directly from Meeting House leads from Service & Justice programs about their work to address food insecurity, including during the pandemic. We’ll also discuss the continued needs within our community, and how people can get involved, and work together across programs. We’re so grateful to be joined by the following Meeting House program leads:

  • Joan Moser, ALIVE
  • Amy Kavelman, Bag Lunch Program
  • Mary Lee Anderson, Senior Services of Alexandria (Meals on Wheels and Groceries to Go)
  • Susan Grandy, Open Table Program

Join us in person in Heritage Hall or online.
