Health and Hunger Summit Session 2: Can youth help build a better network?
June 2, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pmFree
Most of our community pantries, soup kitchens, and backpack programs are staffed by older volunteers who are at heightened risk of COVID-19 and sometimes perform strenuous tasks without assistance. How can we cultivate a network of younger volunteers to help sustain the important work communities do and learn the benefits of giving back? Join us for a panel discussion around benefits, challenges, logistics, and ideas to move forward in building a community network.
