1 in 4 LGBTQ+ adults in the United States experienced food insecurity at some point.

Join us to learn more about hunger within the LGBTQ+ community. TJC’s experienced advocates will discuss the root causes of hunger in the LGBTQ+ community and how we can advocate for systemic change to address food insecurity in our state.
