Hunger as an Obstacle to Learning
“A public discussion about nutritional support in Dartmouth North schools”
The purpose of this public meeting is to bring the community together to discuss issues around hunger in our local schools – its prevalence, its impact, and possible solutions.
Dinner will be served as prepared by the staff and volunteers at the Community Food Centre. Afterwards, we’ll hear from four guest speakers who will briefly describe their personal and organizational perspectives to help define the problem and describe current efforts.
We will then move to an open-mic moderated discussion to hear a wider variety of perspectives from the community, to reflect upon and respond to the guest speakers, and to brainstorm possible solutions.
A report will be published to summarize the discussion, including any additional comments or written submissions provided to the Public Good Society.
