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.
