Description

United Way's Emerging Leaders & ProMedica's Impact and Inspire have partnered together to tackle food insecurity in Lucas County at this year's Shelf Stocker Soiree (formerly Stocking Stuffing Soiree.) Join us for complimentary hors d'oeuvres, a cash bar and to help pack 500 meal kits for kids to take home over holiday break. You’ll also have the opportunity to network with other community-minded young professionals. This event aims to address food insecurity our community. Meal kits will be distributed through Connecting Kids to Meals.

You Can Make a Difference
At this event, you will have the opportunity to build supplemental meal kits for kids who rely on their schools or after school progams for food. During the holidays, when schools are on extended breaks, many households are not able to provide meals for their families. In fact, in Lucas county alone, one in four kids experience food insecurity, and we can make a difference.

This is an event you don’t want to miss!
