Any person, group, ministry or agency interested in helping to fight hunger is invited to attend a local food summit on Aug. 1.
The Community Foundation of East Central Florida and a coalition of local agencies are working together to bring groups and resources together to maximize the ability to provide food for families in need.
One in six people, which includes one in five children in Volusia Couhnty, are facing hunger. Food is a key ingredient in preventing homelessness among those living on very limited resources.
The foundation hopes to bring together groups who distribute food with others concerned about this issue in an effort to expand everyone’s capacity for food assistance.
There will be two summits. One will be held at 10 a.m. on Aug. 1 at the Volusia County Health Department, 845 Holsonback Drive, Daytona Beach. The other is scheduled for 2 p.m. at the DeLand Conference Center, 1301 W. International Drive.
A Flagler County summit is planned for early in 2013.
