The second installment of the Iowa Stops Hunger series, a companywide effort with ia magazine, dsm magazine and the Business Record, will get to the heart of food insecurity in our state, with a special focus on policy and lawmaking. Called “Confronting Drivers of Hunger,” the virtual discussion will start at 11:30 a.m. on Nov. 4.
We’ll hear from those fighting to end hunger about the role the government can play in ensuring that no Iowan has to be food insecure. Policies related to poverty, health and agriculture will be among the key topics of the discussion. Panelists include Dr. Nicole Gilg Gachiani, chief physician quality officer and section chief, primary care clinic, Broadlawns Medical Center; Luke Elzinga, board president, Iowa Hunger Coalition, and communications and advocacy manager of DMARC; Rep. Brian K. Lohse, Iowa House, District 30; and Matt Russell, Iowa Interfaith Power & Light.
