Men & Women United for Youth & Families have planned a “Bridging the Gap to Food Insecurity” for Saturday, April 1 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Bladen Community College.

The purpose of the event, according to the organization, is to provide farmers with information on Healthy Opportunities Pilot, Community Supported Agriculture, and Vacation Vittles programs. These programs purchase produce from local farmers. The goal of the April 1 event is to share the information to provide extra streams of revenue for local farmers. In addition, resources will be provided that aid farmers in navigating USDA programs.

Students in Men & Women United programs will be showcased. Youth program coordinators and their participating youth are invited to attend the program for active learning sessions focused on agriculture, advocacy, and public speaking.

Lunch will be served for all who attend.
