The Empty Plate will discuss the state of food insecurity under the current administration and what individuals, activists, and communities are doing to address it. Expert panelists will share stories from the field in urban and rural California and will explore the potential impact of the Trump administration’s proposed SNAP cuts, watered-down school lunch standards, and anti-immigrant policies on community food security. The panelists will offer opportunities to be engaged in solutions alongside anti-hunger organizations, school districts, farmworker advocates, and local communities.

Panelists:

Jessica Bartholow/Policy Advocate at the Western Center on Law & Poverty

Elizabeth Gomez/Associate Director of Client Services at the Alameda County Community Food Bank

Alexis Guild/Senior Health Policy Analyst at Farmworker Justice

Ricardo Salvador/Director and Senior Scientist at the Union of Concerned Scientists

Following the panel, all attendees will enjoy a reception featuring refreshments from CUESA’s Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.
