Storrs Campus
Student Union, Room 304A

UConnPIRG's Hunger and Homelessness Campaign will be hosting the Voices on Poverty Panel to raise awareness about food insecurity and poverty, hear from speakers, and enable students to have an engaging discussion on what we can do next. We'll be hearing from Michael Puglisi, Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) Coordinator and Assistant Extension Professor, as well as TJ Barber, a representative from the Manchester Community College Food Pantry. We'll also be hearing from Hanako Agresta, a student here at UConn who has spent a majority of her time here working on these important issues. After hearing from these speakers, we'll have a guided discussion on what actions we can take next.

This is an Honors Event. Category: Social Change, Service, & Sustainability.
