The Food for Thought Series brings together the entire Pitt Public Health community of students, faculty, staff, and alumni for thoughtful discussion of today's issues--over food!

Grand Rounds Food Security: It’s not only about the food - Marnie Schilken
Public Health Lecture Hall (A115)

Join Marnie Schilken, Chief Impact Officer at the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, as she engages us in thinking through the lives of three different individuals and how food secure or insecure they might be. We will think about the drivers that allow a household or individual to be more or less food secure, and brainstorm what can happen if we tweak each scenario here and there. Will people fare better or worse? Marnie will also describe to us the various programs at the Food Bank and share with us why and how the Food Bank keeps in mind the people and agencies it serves as it strives to “feed people in need and mobilize the community to end hunger.”
