Webinar: Centering Lived Expertise to Improve Food Assistance and Food Access – Feb 1

Posted by Spotlight on Poverty and Opportunity on February 1, 2022

Poverty Solutions at the University of Michigan is hosting a conversation with Barbie Izquierdo, a courageous mother who uses her story to raise awareness and help make legislative changes in food insecurity and poverty. Born and raised in North Philadelphia, Barbie’s family experienced food insecurity firsthand, which ignited her passion to take action. Barbie has been a community activist and advocate for over a decade, attempting to end the cycle of poverty and food insecurity. Barbie’s story can be found in the documentary, “A Place at the Table.”

This conversation with Barbie will highlight the expertise of individuals who have lived or are living with hunger, who are often locked out of spaces where decisions are made, and will discuss methods to engage individuals with lived expertise in nutrition promotion.

This event will take place on Tuesday, February 1 at 3:30 p.m. ET.
