Wednesday, October 18 @ 11:00 am – 1:30 pm
Are you involved in food security/access work? Join us to connect with fellow Thrive members and people new to the network at our fall regional meeting at Historic Smithfield in Blacksburg.
At this meeting, we’ll hear from partner organizations about their work, discuss barriers in food access/security work, and discuss how we can work together to address these barriers. Lunch will be provided.
The event will begin at 11:30, but you are welcome to join us starting at 11 to mingle with fellow attendees should you wish to. We will wrap up the event at 1:30.
Thrive is a network of organizations addressing food security and food access issues. These organizations include farms, food banks and pantries, community gardens, and meals programs — all with the shared goal of helping more people in our community thrive.
Our mission is collectively increase access to affordable, nutritious food in our region through shared learning, informed advocacy, and responsive strategic action.
By working together through the Thrive network, we are able to better address regional needs. Our members share resources and knowledge with one another, allowing us to distribute, prepare, and recover food throughout the NRV more efficiently.
