August 2021 Town Talk

Please join us on Wednesday, August 25th, 2021 at 6:30pm for our monthly Town Talk. This month, we will be focusing on Baden Street Settlement’s very own Emergency & Family Assistance program, along with FoodLink’s Emergency Food System; Past, Present, and Future.

The EFA has been serving the community and moving residents to self-sufficiency every year. We resolve immediate needs for food, clothing, rent/mortgage, transportation, vital records, advocacy and ultimately identifies steps to avoid a repeat crisis. Our goal is to help reach self-sufficiency for those in need.

Our Keynote Speaker for FoodLink will be Mr. Mitch Gruber, the Chief Partnerships and Strategy Officer there.
