Tuesday, March 26: Lessons Learned in the Field for Solving the Crises of Hunger & Waste

AAUW Morgan Hill member, Dr. Nancy Fishman, was the founder of the nationally recognized food rescue organization Forgotten Harvest, operational since 1990 in the greater metro Detroit area. Using lessons learned from her past experience as a springboard, Nancy has helped create a custom solution unique to this region— A La Carte Silicon Valley Food Rescue, a Silicon Valley Joint Venture initiative to serve Santa Clara County. Food that would otherwise go to waste is rescued and distributed free of charge to the food insecure.

Despite the tech boom, the poverty rate in the San Francisco Bay Area is near record high. In Santa Clara County alone, more than 200,000 people are living below the official poverty line. Overall one in six Bay Area residents is food insecure.

Please come and hear Nancy’s inspirational talk and learn more about this exciting program and how we can all make a difference by reducing greenhouse emissions and eliminating food waste.
