Raising awareness and educating the community about hunger are paramount if we are to work together to end hunger in our region. Through our Speakers Bureau, the Food Bank would like to visit your school, congregation, civic association or any group meeting. We provide an informed speaker, a PowerPoint presentation, and/or a DVD about the Food Bank's work. Presentations can vary to suit time schedules and will be age appropriate.
We also have a special program for elementary school classes, grades K - 6.
And since hunger is about food, hopefully nutritious food, the Food Bank also conducts educational outreach in food handling and safety, nutrition, and cooking with healthy foods through our member agencies. For more information on nutritional education programs, please email the Food Bank Nutrition Staff.
