Community Needs Conversation: Hunger

Leadership Montgomery, in partnership with Montgomery County Food Council, presents a Community Needs Conversation on the topic of hunger.
Our goal is to facilitate a necessary conversation on hunger, which disproportionately affects many in our communities. This event will bring community members and business leaders together to discuss:

  • WHY hunger exists in our county,

  • WHERE it exists

  • HOW it is being addressed and ways in which it can continue to be addressed moving toward eradication.

We at Leadership Montgomery have committed ourselves to facilitating this conversation in hopes that it will assist in moving the needle forward, building connections and continuing a conversation toward action.
