Philabundance Symposium To Build Collaboration Among Hunger Relief Organizations, Tuesday September 17th
Philabundance, the largest hunger relief organization in the Delaware Valley, is holding a day-long symposium on hunger which aims to share the perspectives, strategies and research of multiple individuals and groups working on the issue, whether they are behind the scenes or on the ground in some of the region’s poorest communities.
The agenda is broken into three parts, beginning with a panel of individuals who work in the trenches of hunger relief everyday.
Kelly Courts, director of direct services for Philabundance, will join Nancy Kohn of thePhiladelphia School District’s Nutrition Education Program and representatives of other organizations, like Manna on Main Street, that run food pantries and delivery services.
Next, after a lunch break, there will be a panel of experts who are working on food policy and research, including representatives from AARP and the national hunger relief organizationFeeding America. Eva Gladstein, executive director of the Mayor’s Office of Community Empowerment & Opportunity, will represent Philadelphia.
The symposium will end with a discussion about how to take action, lead by Carra Cote-Ackah, director of partnerships and strategic initiatives at the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for High Impact Philanthropy.
