"I think we all want to be healthy, and to live a long and prosperous life, and food is the gateway to that." – G. Keymah Durden, III

Doors open at 4:30pm with light refreshments. The event begins at 5:30pm. This is a FREE public event. Registration is encouraged, but not required.

Food insecurity has skyrocketed in the United States, and hunger has worsened among households in 2022--with one in 8 households struggling with hunger. Rising inflation and spikes in cost of living means more families are left unable to afford basic necessities such as food.

It is time to reexamine food deserts, and instead, consider the impacts of food apartheid--a segregationist system that divides those with access to nutritious food, and those who are denied that same access due to systemic injustice.

The scarcity of nutritious and affordable food has a tremendous impact on a community in regards to health, culture, and especially education. Comprehensive solutions that address all of these impacts are what is necessary to move forward. And great work is currently underway at local organizations right here in Cleveland.

Join the City Club, in partnership with the Saint Luke's Foundation, as we hear from experts and community leaders on the importance of food justice and food sovereignty in building stronger neighborhoods.


The livestream will be available beginning at 5:30p.m. Have questions? Send a text to 330.541.5794.
