The Fund, with the NYC Department for the Aging (DFTA), is delighted to be a sponsor of the conference and to collaborate with Barbara Turk, NYC's Food Policy Director, to design a special Food Insecurity Track slated for Friday, October 24th, from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon.
The Food Insecurity Track will consist of two parts. For the first half, a panel of experts will discuss national trends among seniors, state and local metrics, and creative solutions being implemented throughout the country. The second half will be a participant-driven discussion that will help DFTA develop a platform for the future.
Esteemed presenters include:
v Craig Gundersen, Soybean Industry Endowed Professor in Agricultural Strategy, Department of Agricultural & Consumer Economics, University of Illinois
v Elaine Waxman, Vice President of Research & Analysis, Feeding America
v Peter S. Arno, Senior Fellow & Director, Health Policy Research, Political Economy Research Institute, University of Massachusetts-Amherst
