Local civic and faith leaders will gather Thursday for a two-hour discussion on how to ensure all Allen Countians have proper access to bountiful and nutritious foods.
The event, set for 6 p.m. at the John Silas Bass Community Center, 505 N. Buckeye St.,  is sponsored by Kansas Appleseed, a non-profit and non-partisan justice center dedicated to serving vulnerable or excluded Kansans.
A flier announcing Thursday’s panel discussion notes 1 in 5 people in Allen County are listed as “food insecure.” That means they aren’t certain where their next meal is coming from.
Kansas Appleseed is being joined by Great Plains United Methodist Church, Humanity House and Thrive Allen County in sponsoring the event.
Healthy snacks will be provided.
