Join the Accokeek Foundation, Southern Maryland Agricultural Development Commission and Rural Coalition for the second in the 2012 Food Justice Series. This free, open-to-all event brings together members of various sectors of our food system, including food banks, government social services, faith-, farm-, and school-based initiatives working to address issues of hunger in Southern Maryland.
The panel will feature Brenda DiCarlo of the Southern Maryland Food Bank who will talk about their work with Farming 4 Hunger and Juan Manuel Thompson of Charles County Social Services who is working to add EBT machines to farmers markets in Southern Maryland. A youth group from Thomas Stone High School will also present their initiative to grow food on campus, and the Southern Maryland Community Food Council will lead a lively discussion about the local initiative of community members working together to systematically achieve a just and sustainable local food system.
