August 6th, 2010

You’re invited to join us for Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread: Feeding God’s Children, our Huntsville hunger and food security workshop. This event is co-sponsored by The Interfaith Mission Service.

13.3 percent of Alabamians are food insecure, meaning they have limited or uncertain access to a healthy diet. What can you do?

Get resources you can use now to fight hunger and food insecurity in your community. Representatives from food pantries, food banks, hunger ministries, community gardens, and government aid agencies will be on hand to discuss the sustainable, long-term solutions to our state’s hunger problem.

Who should attend? Social workers, teachers, outreach ministers, faith leaders, community leaders, and anyone who is interested in working together to end hunger in north Alabama. Continuing education credits available upon request.
