 Using Supply Chain Management to End Childhood Hunger in America

In the United States of America there are roughly 13 million food insecure children, one out of every five, who doesn’t know when they will have their next safe meal.  While formally we are attempting as a nation to address it with programs, welfare, benefits, food stamps (SNAP) and with free meals in school, the fact is that this is not providing our nation's children with what they need to thrive, and to become the healthy and productive adults we expect that they will become.  These children fall behind in school, and are simply unable to focus on what they are being taught because they can only think about being hungry.

End 68 Hours of Hunger has as its vision ending childhood hunger in America, one school at a time. They do this by confronting the food insecurity experienced by children between the free lunch they receive in school on Friday and their free breakfast Monday by packing bags of non perishable food and delivering them to schools where they are given to children in need to take home for the weekend. End 68 Hours of Hunger is 100% volunteer and 100% of all undesignated funds are spent on food.

In this interactive session you will:

Actively participate in developing a supply chain solution that will feed these children;

Discover how the problem can be solved in every community using volunteer driven supply chain management;

and

Learn how you can make a significant difference in the lives of our nation's youngest citizens.

There is no cost for attending, but donations of non perisable food items will be collected for Good Shepard Food Bank. You may also donate to End 68 Hours of Hunger directly through our presenter, Claire Bloom, Executive Director.

Net working and light refreshments begin at 5:30, program starts at 6PM and ends at 8PM. We look forward to seeing you there!
