Let’s Talk About Rural Food Security with Jillian Hishaw

April 8, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free, donations encouraged

Why can’t farmers and farm workers afford to put food on the table? How do the very people that grow our food go hungry? High Desert Food and Farm Alliance is honored to welcome Jillian Hishaw to the (virtual) stage as she talks about the work she is doing in farming communities to reduce rates of food insecurity. Rural hunger is often a forgotten topic of focus in farming communities.  According to the USDA, 84% of U.S. counties with the highest percentage of childhood hunger are rural.  Through F.A.R.M.S., Hishaw has focused on procuring and donating produce in rural farming communities over the past eight years.  Over one million pounds of produce have been donated in and outside of the US. The importance of infrastructure in rural communities and communal resolutions are essential to rural America’s revitalization.

Funding for this event is provided through a USDA Community Food Projects (CFP) grant.
