Wednesday, October 13th at 1PM we welcome you to celebrate “Food Heroes” for World Food Day 2021.

Join us for an in-depth discussion with members of the community who have pivoted from their everyday tasks to pouring out their hearts, minds, and time to their communities to help in these times of need.

This World Food Day panel will discuss the changes in supply, social justice, and quality access to food in our local community, on a global level and will talk through the challenges organizations have stepped up to address in fighting food insecurity within their communities.
