Feed Fayetteville to host “Hunger in the Land of Plenty” panel Oct. 19 | AnnouncementAnnouncement, News — By Christopher Spencer on October 18, 2011 at 7:55 pm
The organization Feed Fayetteville invites the public to learn more about local hunger issues at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 19, at the University of Arkansas Global Campus Theater on the Fayetteville Square, 2 E. Center St.
The event is the first of a series of panel discussions: “Hunger in the Land of Plenty.” Feed Fayetteville was formed to help alleviate hunger and create food security in the local community by cultivating a local sustainable food network.
Admission is free, but participants are invited to donate a shelf-stable protein source, such as a can of tuna or beans, a jar of peanut butter, or a box of powdered milk. Donated non-perishable food items will be given to the pantries represented by participating panelists.
Panelists will focus on hunger in local educational systems, from preschool to adult learning environments. These professionals work at Head Start, the Fayetteville Public Schools, the University of Arkansas, and Fayetteville’s Adult and Community Education Center. They will describe hunger situations they face every day and answer questions from the audience.
Sponsors of the event are the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Arkansas and Ozark Natural Foods.
