Webinar: Examining Food Security Within the Farmworker Community
Farmworkers harvest the nation’s food, yet suffer some of the highest rates of food insecurity in the country. This webinar will explore the causes of food insecurity among the nation’s agricultural workers and explore comprehensive approaches to address this problem.
This webinar will feature presentations by Dr. William Kinsey, Director of Mobile Migrant Health Services at Family Health La Clinica in Wisconsin, and Lorena Marroquin, Director of Community Impact with FIND Food Bank in California, who will discuss their organizations’ initiatives to address food insecurity and malnutrition in farmworker communities. The webinar will highlight relevant government policies and programs, as well as promising practices employed by health centers and community-based organizations to increase farmworkers’ access to nutritious and culturally-appropriate foods.
