Farm Share Invited to Speak at UM For 2014 ACC Leadership Symposium
Coral Gables, FL-The Atlantic Coast Conference Leadership Symposium invited Farm Share, as one of ten experts, to lead a table discussion for eight student leaders on food and water access. The ACC leadership event’s mission is to foster students on global and local issues.
Farm Share’s John Delgado spoke to the young movers and shakers to tackle food issues on a global scale.
The young minds came together at the table discussion and came up with new solutions to fight against hunger.
“I am glad to see that food and hunger is in the minds of these young people,” said John Delgado, assistant operations manager for Farm Share, “As a food bank, we need to be able to pass the baton to the next generation, so they can take the cause to the next level and maybe even end hunger.”
You can not end hunger, but with an initiative you can educate the public to access the resources you have to stop malnutrition right now,” said John Delgado from Farm Share, during the table discussion.
The ACC is made up of fifteen universities across the nation. The University of Miami hosted the event for the first time and eight students across the country came to UM for the event.
Last year, the event was held in Boston.
