New Trends in Hunger Relief in Montgomery County

  • 12:30 PM
  • Meeting House

On Sunday, March 15, at the rise of Meeting (12:30) in the Meeting Room, Jackie DeCarlo, member of our Meeting and head of the Manna Food Center, will talk about new trends in hunger relief in Montgomery County and how her participation in the life of the Meeting shapes her professional journey.

  • One aspect of the new trends is that social justice organizations are focusing on “zip code destiny,” the phenomenon in which where you are born and raised shapes your ability to realize your full human potential.
  • Manna Food Center has been implementing a place-based strategy focused on the dignity of choice, the role of “Food as Medicine,” and addressing root causes of hunger and poverty through community engagement.
  • The center currently reaches 34,000 of the approximately 63,000 of our neighbors in Montgomery County who don’t always know where their next meal may come from, and it has made a number of major changes in an effort to reach the rest.
