Webinar: CLOSING THE MEAL GAP Understanding Food Insecurity in the Land of Plenty

  • Webinar
  • Wednesday, September 21, 2022

Food insecurity is defined simply as not enough access to sufficient, quality, food to meet one's basic needs. In the United States alone we know that 1 in 8 people face hunger every day, including more than
12 million children and nearly one-third of college students. All this happening in one of the most abundant food producing countries in the world. Food insecurity is associated with many health-related issues such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, obesity and depression, costing the United States billions in healthcare dollars. But what can be done? During this interactive presentation we will dip our toes into the community food experience, learn from those directly impacted by hunger and food insecurity and walk away with support solutions to affect change in the health of our community. Let’s close the meal gap.

Featured Speakers:
Dr. Matt Moore, Ball State Department of Social Work
Hanna Kelley, American Dairy Association Indiana
Sunni Matters, Second Harvest Food Bank
Carol Bradshaw, Second Harvest Food Bank

Sponsored by the American Dairy Association of Indiana Inc, and the Ball State College of Health
