Let's Talk About How Faith Communities Can Strengthen Efforts to End Poverty! #FoodFri
In 2015, according to Feeding America, "42.2 million Americans lived in food insecure households, including 29.1 million adults and 13.1 million children." Poverty contributes to hunger in America.
Faith based and community organizations offer members and their communities resources to help during their times of need. They are often the first responders, offering assistance in a variety of ways.
On November 11, 2016, at 1 p.m. EST, @MomsRising and @therealfpl will hold a #FoodFri tweetchat to discuss the newest findings of the President’s Advisory Council for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships to Address Poverty and Inequality. Their report, Strengthening Efforts to Increase Opportunity and End Poverty, provides actionable steps to combat poverty.
We hope you will join us. Feel free to ask questions and/or share your own resources. Together, we can end poverty!
