According to Feeding America, in 2018 37.2 million Americans lived in household defined by the federal government as “food insecure” – unable to always afford enough food to eat. With the unemployment, school closures, and insecurity brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, that number has only grown. Anti-hunger organizations across the country have been fighting this problem for years – from emergency food services and food pantries to helping community members and customers sign up for SNAP and other social services. In this webinar, we’ll talk to a few of those organizations to learn more about their work leading up to the pandemic, how their work has changed, and what the culinary community to do to support their work. Panelists include Greg Silverman of West Side Campaign Against Hunger (NYC), Mary Nesbitt of MANNA Food Bank (NC), and Chef LaToya M. Meaders of Collective Fare (NYC).
