Event description

Description

The mission of the Food Bank of Northern Nevada is Feeding the hungry today and solving hunger for tomorrow through community partnership. As important as food assistance is in solving immediate hunger issues they cannot provide lasting answers to the problem of chronic food insecurity. Bridges to a Thriving Nevada is a bold step in that direction. Bridges opens up conversations with and between service providers and businesses whose daily work connects them with the lives of people in poverty.

Bridges Out of Poverty is a thorough and intensive two-day workshop based on the framework set in Bridges Out of Poverty: Strategies for Professionals and Communities. In Day 1, workshop participants explore a wide-range of issues around poverty like the following key points: Schools and businesses operate from middle-class norms not always understood across class and the people most affected by poverty must be included in the creation of an accurate model of poverty. In Day 2, workshop participants learn how to implement Bridges' constructs and tools in their workplaces and in the community.
