Inflation’s Impact on Food Insecurity
As inflation increases, households must spend a higher percentage of income on goods and services with a devastating impact. This one-hour talk will feature Dr. Pam Brown as she references her extensive research collected over the last 25 years. Dr. Brown will highlight how inflation may be worsening food insecurity for many families in our County. Event participants will also hear from the Anne Arundel County Food Bank and learn more about our work to meet the food needs in our county, as well as our most pressing challenges.
This event is part of Hunger Action Month activities, helping to raise awareness about food insecurity in Anne Arundel County while also inspiring community members to take action to fight hunger. Participants in the Passport Challenge will receive an Action Code during the event giving them a chance to win prizes AND generate a $5 donation to the Anne Arundel County Food Bank!
