Join United Way and IU Political and Civic Engagement for a monthly breakfast speaker series to explore issues which impact our community, friends, and neighbors.
On Thursday, February 13, the topic, “Food Security: Feeding Monroe County” will be explored. One in six children in Monroe County are at risk of going hungry in households that struggle to put food on the table. How does our community ensure that these families have access to adequate food and nutrition? Join us for the return of Wake Up! with United Way to explore the systems in place that help families experiencing food insecurity. What’s working, what’s not, what’s new? Panelists include Julio Alonso, Executive Director of Hoosier Hills Food Bank; Vicki Pierce, Executive Director of Community Kitchen; and Brandon Schurr from IU Division of Student Affairs and MCCSC School Board.
Alongside friends, neighbors, nonprofits and community partners, learn more about issues that directly or indirectly affect everyone in our area. Attendees will have the opportunity to deepen their awareness about someone else’s reality while learning about the challenges, innovations, collaborations and resources available through area nonprofits, and how to get more involved in making a difference.
Wake Up! with United Way is a collaborative project of United Way of Monroe County and Indiana University’s Political and Civic Engagement program.
