Please join us for a Roundtable Discussion on Food Insecurity

On Wednesday, April 10th from 8:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. at the Hilton in Scranton (100 Adams Avenue, Scranton), please join us for a Roundtable Discussion focusing on the food insecurity challenges facing the Lackawanna County region.

The Scranton Area Community Foundation is looking to gain a comprehensive picture of the regional challenge of food insecurity. Information shared during this roundtable will be used to help identify opportunities, inform Foundation grantmaking, and to provide insight to other foundations, donors, and philanthropic partners.

This is the first in a series of community roundtables that the Scranton Area Community Foundation will be hosting in 2019 to provide additional insight regarding topics that were under-represented during the community forums held in June 2018.

In addition to grantmakers and philanthropists collaborating with us on this community roundtable, we are welcoming all local food distributors, suppliers, pantries, and organizations that provide food-related assistance to our community.

Organizations that are interested in participating in this roundtable discussion should contact Dana Hunter at the Scranton Area Community Foundation at dhunter@safdn.org or 570-347-6203 by Wednesday, April 3.
