Advocacy in Action Lunch & Learn

October 21, 2021

12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Roughly 850,000 people are facing food insecurity in the state of Missouri alone - and that includes around 220,000 children. People who are food insecure may have to choose between paying for nutritionally adequate food and other necessities such as housing and medical payments. Oftentimes, we are at a loss as to what to do to help. 

For this month's Lunch & Learn, we are pleased to welcome Trina Ragain, MSPH, Chief Innovation Officer of Operation Food Search along with Miriam Seidenfeld, MSW, CEO of Jewish Family Services, which houses the Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry. 

As Chief Innovation Officer, Trina is responsible for identifying and implementing innovative programs and policy solutions to address food access barriers. Miriam has over 25 years of experience working with children and families in nonprofit settings and over 15 years of nonprofit executive leadership experience. 

Please join us to learn about solutions to the root causes of food insecurity and what we can do as a community to help families and individuals who are facing this cruel obstacle.
