Georgia’s Black and Latino households with children experience food insecurity at three times the rate of White families.

Voices for Georgia’s Children has partnered with the Georgia Food Bank Association to engage state agencies to bring you a virtual town hall on hunger in our state. Panelists discuss lessons learned and next steps to addressing food access for families across the state. More than 430,000 households with children in Georgia do not know where their next meal will come from—an approximate 8% increase in food insecurity from March 2020.

PANELISTS:

Gary Black, Commissioner, Georgia Department of Agriculture
Richard Woods, Superintendent, Georgia Department of Education
Tom Rawlings, Director, Georgia Division of Family and Children Services
Rian Ringsrud, Deputy Commissioner for Finance and Administration, Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning
Danah Craft, Executive Director, Georgia Food Bank Association

Introduced by Erica Fener Sitkoff, Ph.D., Executive Director, Voices for Georgia’s Children.

The entire town hall can be viewed here or downloaded from Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/497410778.
