Upcoming Event: Lee County Hunger Roundtable
July 15, 2008 § Leave a comment
This weekend’s editorial in the Austin American-Statesman, reported a disheartening, but familiar tale facing social service nonprofits. The economy is forcing food banks and others to cut or amend services when it is needed most. And there’s not enough money coming in from the community to address the need.
We recognize that feeding the hungry today is only part of the solution. We must also come together as a community to create meaningful, sustainable change. If you’re in Lee County, and interested in speaking with community leaders, advocates, legislative representatives and concerned citizens about hunger issues in Lee County, please join us this Thursday.
Noon – 2:00 P.M.
First Baptist Church
600 Sunrise Ave.
Lunch is provided
R.S.V.P. to Lisa Goddard, Advocacy & Online Marketing Manager
