A different kind of hunger

Illustration by HAYLEY DOSHAY

With all the time and money Sacramento's growing foodie population spends searching for (and talking about) farm-fresh food cooked in a gourmet fashion and paired with the latest trendy beers, it's more important than ever that members of our community are also aware of how big a problem hunger is locally. That's the subject Hunger In the Farm-To-Fork Capital: Join the Conversation tackles. According to the event's organizers, 6.2 million Californians are food insecure, 50,000 people in Sacramento county go hungry every day, and the issue of hunger impacts all citizens. This event—part community conversation, part story-sharing session and part solutions-oriented brainstorm—will feature information kiosks, art and refreshments. Sponsors of the event include Village Square Commons, Grow Sacramento and the Sacramento Hunger Coalition. It happens at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, June 3, at the Clunie Community Center, 601 Alhambra Boulevard. Admission is free, but registration is required at http://conta.cc/1bQD4O8.
