JCRC collaborates in ‘Responding to Hunger’
May 1st, 2012
On Sunday, June 3, 2-5 p.m., the Jewish Community Relations Council of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation will join with other local organizations to present “Responding to Hunger: Creating Local Solutions.”
The event will be held in the Weasler Auditorium at Marquette University (1442 W. Wisconsin Ave.). It will focus on providing individuals with information they need to respond to the hunger crisis.
The documentary film “Food Stamped”(2010) will be shown. The film follows a couple trying to eat a healthy diet using U.S. Food Stamps.
After the screening, break-out sessions will explore such topics as how to advocate for food justice; planting a garden to grow food for the hungry; and making the harvest last all year.
The event is made possible by a grant from the Jewish Council for Public Affairs. Marquette University Institute for the Transformation of Learning is a partner in this project. Co-sponsors include Tikkun Ha-Ir of Milwaukee, Interfaith Conference of Greater Milwaukee, Tippecanoe Presbyterian Church, and the Hunger Task Force.
The event is cost-free and open to the public. For more information, contact John Grochowski, email@example.com or 414-390-5781.
