Eastern Montgomery County to hold food summit on hunger and food insecurity

On April 25, 2016

Montgomery County will host a food summit designed to bring together faith leaders, community stakeholders, elected officials and nonprofit providers to discuss issues related to poverty, hunger and food insecurity in eastern Montgomery County. The event will be held Wednesday, April 27 from 5 to 9 p.m. at The People’s Community Baptist Church, 31 Norwood Road, Silver Spring.

A resource fair, starting at 5 p.m., will be followed by dinner, comments by County Executive Isiah “Ike” Leggett, a panel discussion and a community open mic session. This session will provide an opportunity for the community to join in the conversation with providers and the faith community, learn how to make a significant difference and be part of next steps in advocacy, coordination, programs and policy solutions.

“By distributing and delivering food and running meal programs and food pantries, faith communities address hunger every day here in Montgomery County,” said Leggett. “This summit is an opportunity to learn from one another and identify steps we can take together to better alleviate hunger in our county.”

The summit is being held in collaboration with the East County Interfaith Community, food service providers, the East County Regional Services Center, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Office of Community Partnerships.
