Wide open spaces: Food security in a rural context

For those experiencing food insecurity in rural areas, the going can be particularly tough: public transit is non-existent, grocery stores are few and far between, and social services are limited. If your organization operates in a rural area or small town, then you’ll know that your context is very distinct from that of your urban colleagues — from how to connect with remote participants and deciding where to offer programs, to how you raise funds and awareness in a small and often conservative scene.

Join us for a dynamic conversation on how to do the work we do in rural areas. We invite you to come share your challenges as well as your inspiring strategies for tackling them.
