[Webinar] Looking beyond the emergency: Innovation in local and regional food banks



After many years in action, food banks haven't gone away. Though many continue to keep their eyes on the prize of "putting the food bank out of business" through adequate social policy some are taking steps now to transform emergency food programs into proactive solutions to the poor health and social isolation that is virtually baked into the poverty experience. This webinar will look at the food bank system and innovations that are taking place at both the regional and grassroots level to make food banks healthier, more dignified, and a force for policy change.

CFCC will host a lively conversation between Susannah Morgan, CEO of the Oregon Food Bank; Charles Jergly, Director of Agency Relations at The Daily Bread Food Bank; and Rekha Cherian who has just joined the CFCC team after seven years managing the food bank at The Stop Community Food Centre in Toronto.

When: Tuesday, March 14 at 12 - 1p.m. Eastern

CFCC is also launching Community Food Centres Canada’s newest manual, Beyond Emergency Food: How to evolve your food bank into a force for change. This practical tool offers ways food banks can build on their strengths and resources to look beyond emergency food provision and set their sights on bigger picture issues, from building health and dignity to engaging community voices and calling for change.
