ShareCorps - Hall Hunger Initiative - Food Equity Associate
 
 
 
We at the Hall Hunger Initiative agree with the overwhelming conclusion of hunger, policy, and healthcare experts who argue that systemic change requires a systems-based approach to our food security challenges. Furthermore, we know that food insecurity does not exist in a vacuum and viable solutions can only come through collective impact. As such, our response to Dayton’s food crisis, through strong partnerships and strategic capacity building, seeks to build a sustainable and just community food system in the Miami Valley that provides good food for all.
