BANGOR — Faith Linking in Action will explore the issue of Food Justice in our community through discussion, education and of course, food, 5:30-8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 3, at Redeemer Lutheran Church, 540 Essex St.

A potluck dinner will start at 5:30 p.m. and the program will begin at 6 p.m. Food AND Medicine’s grassroots community leaders have been organizing collective gardens in their communities and advocating for the protection of vital programs like SNAP which have been under regular attack.

Faith Linking in Action is highlighting this work at the convening and looking to spark a critical conversation about the state of Hunger and Food Insecurity in our communities.

Organizing through faith communities and raising the voices of marginalized are essential components in the fight for a region where people aren’t forced to choose between food, medicine and the other necessities of life.
