West Texas Hunger Summit
The Hunger Summit is an opportunity for agency representatives, school districts, churches and individuals from across the West Texas region to share their knowledge and expertise about food insecurity and prospective methods to overcome it. This event is designed to encourage the exchange of ideas and to strengthen partnerships as we move closer to our goal of ending hunger together.
The keynote speaker for the Summit will be Dr. Baker Harrell, founder of IT’S TIME TEXAS. He will have two sessions in the morning to review the critical state of health and hunger in America and will summarize the wide-sweeping societal shifts that have contributed to these closely linked crises. Dr. Jeremy Lyon, Superintendent of Schools for Frisco ISD will be the lunch speaker. He will share the innovative steps his school district has taken to promote health and wellness.
The West Texas Hunger Summit will offer breakout session tracts in the afternoon, including Health and Wellness, Community Organizing, Hunger Outreach, and Overcoming Hunger Barriers.
