Farming After Dark…Finding a Better Way

When November rolls around we tend to start thinking about the holidays. One of the big ones is Thanksgiving! We have a lot to be thankful for in this country. When you think about Thanksgiving thoughts of turkey, ham and all the fixings come to mind. Even in this land of plenty, there will be people that go hungry on Thanksgiving.

This month our speaker for Farming After Dark will be Lisa Hamler-Fugitt, executive director for the Ohio Association of Foodbanks. Lisa has held that position since 2001. She is Ohio’s leading anti-hunger voice and a hard-working advocate for Ohio’s foodbanks and Ohio’s insecure families.

Lisa will be sharing about the state of hunger in Ohio, the role the foodbanks play in addressing the issue of food insecurity and how we can help meet the need. This is a topic directly related to agriculture that we really don’t think about unless we are the ones that are hungry.

In our county, Muskingum, there are 17 food pantries that are part of the local Hunger Network. These pantries supply an estimated 500,000 meals per year just in this county. The need is great!

Join us on ZOOM, Wednesday evening November 16, 2022 at 7:30 PM EST for Farming After Dark…Finding A Better Way. Hope to see you, if not, have a happy and safe holiday season.
