Sunday, April 18, 9-10 a.m. via Zoom
Susan Aaronson, M.A., R.D., U-M School of Public Health
Did you know that levels of food insecurity were at a record low in 2020 prior to the pandemic? With high levels of unemployment, school closures, limited food availability and supply chain issues, we are now experiencing food insecurity as high as 30%.
Join us on Sunday, April 18 from 9-10 a.m. on Zoom to learn more about vulnerable populations, social determinants of health, improvements to food access and federal and local programs that assist the food insecure in this interactive conversation with Susan Aaronson. Susan is a registered dietitian and lecturer in the Department of Nutritional Sciences at the U-M School of Public Health. She teaches an undergraduate course titled Hunger in America and a graduate course on food science. Susan also is on the board of directors at both Food Gatherers and Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels.
This opportunity is part of FUMC’s Food Insecurity Advocacy and Awareness month in April, and is offered by the FUMC Mind the Gap group.
