“Expanding Emergency Food Access: Thinking Beyond Food Pantries” With Aubrey Alvarez
With hundreds, if not thousands, of food pantries and free meal sites throughout Iowa, how are 1 in 5 children and 1 in 8 adults still food insecure? During this session, we’ll explore opportunities available within every rural, suburban, and urban community to put more quality food where individuals and families are already located.
Aubrey Alvarez is co-founder and executive director of Eat Greater Des Moines, a nonprofit organization based in Des Moines. Eat Greater Des Moines unites the community in providing quality food access for all through connection, advocacy, and collaboration. Aubrey graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a degree in health promotion and a master’s in public administration from Drake University.
Dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m. with the presentation beginning at 6 p.m. Cost is $15 and a cash bar will be available.
