Food Gatherers is proud to present The State of Our Plate: Gathering Momentum in the Fight Against Hunger, a facilitated community-wide discussion of the intersections between hunger, health, and policy. This dynamic, participatory event will celebrate our 30th year fighting hunger, highlight the network of local hunger relief providers, examine the persistence of hunger in Washtenaw County, and connect allies to improve the current response to food insecurity.
The event will include a luncheon with program, panel discussion on intersectional policy and systems change opportunities in hunger and health, and breakout sessions facilitated by subject matter experts. Food Gatherers is excited to announce that Congresswoman Debbie Dingell, MDHHS Director Robert Gordon, and Alfreda Rooks, Director of Michigan Medicine Community Health Services, will serve as panelists at The State of Our Plate.
