Monthly Convening: “Food Insecurity”

On Friday, February 28th, SDMFC hosted its second Monthly Convening for 2020 at the Mission Valley Library and focused on the topic of “Food Insecurity.” We opened our February convening with a “Collaborative Spotlight”, Cynthia Marinaccio from Easter Seals Southern California, ‘Bob Hope Veterans Support Program’, shared a sweet success story. With the support of SDMFC’s collaboration, Cynthia was able to link one of her clients in need with multiple other agencies within SDMFC’s members, contributing tremendously to her client’s success.  February’s convening held a guest panel of experts fighting against food insecurity:

Some of our panelists recently starred on NBC News, sharing an eye-opening look at what food insecurity can look like for some of our military service members, check out the clip here.  Another highlight from this month’s convening was our breakout activity. Attendees got to work in small groups and answer three questions about food insecurity. They then got to share their answers with the whole audience.
