NERJ Workshop: History of Food Banking
Stand alone workshop or can be paired with Root Causes of Hunger
In this reflective session, we will travel back to the origin story of western food banking and notice how those beginnings shaped how we perceive food banking today. Along our journey, we will also revisit ways in which food sharing and harvest has been a cultural practice in many communities. Together, we will listen for patterns and look ahead towards future generations.
