Join the National Association of Counties (NACo) for the “Food Security as a Driver of Economic Mobility: Strategies for Local Government,” webinar on June 16, 2–3 PM EST.
In partnership with the National League of Cities, this webinar will feature an expert overview of the state of food insecurity in the United States as well as example solutions from both cities and counties. While a wide range of factors contributes to an individual’s economic mobility or movement up and down the economic ladder, the ties between food insecurity and economic inequality are demonstrated. Individuals who experience a lack of food security face mental and physical health consequences that can directly impact their employment status, use of the health care system, and other factors that impact upward mobility. Cities and counties are working to improve the food security of residents by integrating local efforts across jurisdictions and working with key community partners to enhance food production, transportation, and distribution. Registration is required.
Every Maryland county is a member of the National Association of Counties (NACo), and all Maryland county elected officials and staff are invited to attend the webinar. Registration is required.
