Salon in the Suburbs brings together Jews and social activists with important policy makers, attorneys, and academics for casual conversations to explore the cutting edge issues facing our society and state today.
Join us for our March Salon on The State of Hunger in MA with Ellen Parker from Project Bread!
In the 2014 Status Report on Hunger, Massachusetts’ annual report card on hunger, Project Bread finds that the rate of household food insecurity in the Commonwealth is 71% higher than it was a decade ago, with no signs of improvement.
What can we, as individuals and as members of the Jewish community, do to help raise and address the issue of hunger?
What public policy initiatives can we support to fight hunger, promote better nutrition, and ensure that children, seniors and others in need have access to food?
How does the Walk for Hunger help fight hunger in Massachusetts?
Join us as we hear from Ellen Parker, Executive Director of Project Bread on transforming a traditional anti-hunger organization to a leading national model that responds to the crisis of individual food insecurity while investing in systemic changes to prevent hunger and how we can help address this issue.
