In this highly interactive and web‐based format we will have experts in the food industry answer questions in real time on how the current food system affects families and what you can do to be a part of a national movement to seek change.
We are excited to announce that our own, Vickie Thomas, WWJ City Beat Reporter will serve as our moderator and Dr. Oran Hesterman, President and Chief Operating Officer of the Fair Food Network, Dwayne Wells, President/CEO, Gleaners Food Bank, and Eric Davis, United Way, will serve as our expert panelists.
