Town hall meeting: Food insecurity and Hunger Relief (Markell Miller from Food Gatherers; Monday, Feb. 12th from 4-5 pm in 2310 School of Education)

Feb 12 2018, 4:00pm - 5:00pm EST

Markell Miller from Food Gatherers will talk about her organization's efforts to fight hunger in Michigan, including an update on legislative initiatives currently underway.

Here’s a reminder of the guidelines for participating in a Town Hall Meeting:

● You are expected to do the reading and come to the meeting with a question (inspired by the readings below) written on a paper or index card that you’ll hand in before the meeting starts. Make sure that you keep a second copy of the question in case you’re asked by a faculty member or topic coordinator to pose your question to the speaker.

● Out of respect for our speakers, laptops must be closed during town hall presentations.

 

Readings for this Town Hall Meeting are:

From Feeding America: http://www.feedingamerica.org/take-action/advocate/farm-bill.html   From the Food Research and Action Center: http://www.frac.org/wp-content/uploads/frac-facts-snap-strengths.pdf
