Description


On September 25, 2019 we untangle the roots of food insecurity and shine light on sustainable, new models to advance an equitable food system with Philip Sambol and Kris Garin.


The consequences of hunger and food insecurity reach into every facet of a household’s life, forcing either/or choices between necessities, setting in motion long-term health issues, damaging educational opportunities, and more.

For nearly 20% of all households in Dallas–and for more than 25% of all children–food insecurity was an issue last year. For more and more members of our community, food insecurity is a daily battle.

Though complex, the causes of an inequitable food system aren’t a mystery. Nor is the injustice of it intractable. Together, we can build a food ecosystem that supports the wellbeing of and is open to every member of our community.

Join us on Wednesday, September 25th at the last installment of the 2019 Social Innovation Luncheon Series as Philip Sambol and Kris Garin help us untangle the roots of food insecurity and shine light on sustainable, new models for greater food access and affordability.
