9/26 Yancey Co Hunger Resource Fair & Newsmakers Forum

Hunger.jpgCarolina Public Press is working with MANNA Food Bank and The Community Table to offer a Hunger Resource Fair & Newsmakers Forum.

The Newsmakers Forum will feature five panelists working in the community around the issue of hunger. We’ll discuss solutions already being used to address the problem in the community, as well as current challenges and how they may be addressed. We’ll also take a look at what the staff at Carolina Public Press uncovered in their year-long series, Faces of Hunger.

The Resource Fair will offer a collection of resources for people in the community facing food insecurity. The MANNA Mobile Food Pantry will be there, as well as their nutrition staff to educate people on ways to create healthy meals with food often provided by food banks. Local food banks will also be present to talk about what they offer and how people can receive help.

Newsmakers Forum is 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m.
Hunger Resource Fair is 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
This event is free and open to the public.
