Food Insecurity is the lack of access to enough food for an active healthy life for all household members. It requires families to make decisions on allocating their income between important basic needs such as housing, medical needs or nutritional food.
KVMR News Director, Paul Emery will moderate the discussion with a panel of experts from local food service organizations including Sierra Harvest, Nevada County Public Health, The Nevada County Food Bank, Gold Country Community Services and United Way of Nevada County.
The forum will open with panelists discussing the Food Insecurity issue and its impact on the local community. Following that the panel will answer questions from the media and from audience members.
