Chatham County: Newsmakers Forum on Hunger

October 25, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm


Carolina Public Press is working with the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, MomsRising and other community partners to hold a forum on hunger at Chatham Community Library.

The Newsmakers Forum will feature five panelists working in the community around the issue of hunger. We’ll discuss solutions already being used to address the problem in the community, as well as current challenges and how they may be addressed. We’ll also take a look at what the staff at Carolina Public Press uncovered in their year-long series, Faces of Hunger.

Forum: 12:30pm to 2:00pm
Breakout Session on Child Hunger: 2:30pm to 3:30pm
Breakout Session on Senior Hunger: 4:00pm to 5:00pm
