The first-ever SouthCoast Food Security Forum was held Wednesday, February 1st at UMass Dartmouth’s Charlton College of Business. It was a unique opportunity to look at hunger and surrounding issues through a variety of lenses, with a diverse group of experts on hand to provide context, led by Project Bread Executive Director Ellen Parker, the evening’s keynote speaker. GROW Education’s Adam Davenport gave a thoughtful presentaion on The Future of Urban Agriculture in New Bedford for Terra Cura, Inc.
The Connector Series was delighted to serve as a co-sponsor for this forum. UMass Dartmouth’s Business Innovation Research Center and LeDuc Center for Civic Engagement were gracious hosts, and our fellow co-sponsors – Coastline Elderly Services, Southeastern Massachusetts Agricultural Partnership and Southeastern Massachusetts Food Security Network – all brought something insightful to the table.
