HeartTalk Detroit: Food Insecurity in the African American Community

February 12 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EST

Enlightening panel discussion regarding food insecurity in Metro Detroit.

Lifestyle has a significant impact on health, with diet and nutrition playing a key role. In addition to physical activity, the ability to access and afford healthy food is critical to ongoing good health. In many urban environments, residents have reduced access to fresh food and produce, often due to limitations in income or transportation. These conditions may lead to food insecurity, experienced by more than one-third of Detroiters.

This free webinar explores the complex issue of food insecurity, including the challenges it presents and the opportunities to reduce its presence. From government-funded programs to urban farming, our panelists will discuss the future of food in Metro Detroit.
