Hunger: Springboard Social Innovation Forum

Urban Grind East

The Springboard Social Innovation Forum is a new monthly event designed to engage community members in solving local challenges with lasting solutions. This free event promises a mix of conversation, collaboration, and professional support for social venture launchers, all designed to help move good ideas into action.

This month's topic is "Hunger." Hear from gleaners, food educators, school gardeners, state offices, food security policy makers, nutritionists, CSAs and others who are feeding our neighbors---and feeding them well. Join this important conversation to learn where your work overlaps and supports this goal.

In conjunction with the forum, nine local artists have converted refrigerators into creative statements about hunger. Their provocative art installation opens Friday, November 7th from 6-8pm at the Urban Grind and will remain on display through the month of November.
