MiamiLATINO Magazine will present a NO MAS HAMBRE Forum at 12-2 PM on November 14 at Camillus House, 1603 NW 7th Ave. in Miami. The event is free and open to the public and will include community leaders, elected officials, anti-hunger activists, and representatives of the media. For more information please go to www.nomashambre.com. To RSVP, please contact Rafael Romero at theROMEROgroup@aol.com.

 

“Nearly one in three Latinos go hungry,” said LATINO Publisher Alfredo Estrada, “although many of us simply aren’t aware of this crisis. If we want to end hunger, we need to get our community actively engaged.”

 

“We are looking forward to working with NO MAS HAMBRE to improve the lives of struggling older adults in Miami as the work we do continues to focus on empowering and connecting people over 50 with resources they may need,” said Jo Ann Jenkins, AARP Foundation President.

 

This event is part of NO MAS HAMBRE, a nationwide initiative launched by LATINO Magazine and AARP Foundation to raise awareness of hunger in the Latino community and encourage Latinos to get involved. The Forum in Miami will present ways to join the fight against hunger and cover the importance of a healthy diet, food insecurity among Latino elderly, SNAP outreach and other topics. Complimentary food and refreshments will be served. The audience will then participate in a question and answer session moderated by LATINO Publisher Alfredo Estrada with invited panelists and speakers.

 

NO MAS HAMBRE is made possible with the support of AARP Foundation, AARP Florida, Wells Fargo, Camillus House, Feeding South Florida, and others. For more information, go to www.nomashambre.com. To RSVP, please contact Rafael Romero at theROMEROgroup@aol.com.
