This collection process includes block-by-block, geographic analysis of the food insecurity in the county. The second part, which will continue through the month of May, is one-on-one conversations that will make the issues and needs more personal.
To get involved in Growing Wapello Together, there will be a consortium meeting from 4:30-6 p.m. June 2 at the Hotel Ottumwa. There will also be a series of community conversations in the coming weeks and an action forum from 5:30-8:30 p.m. June 5 at Indian Hills Community College.
For more information on how to get involved, contact Payne at 803-467-2845 or email Payne.email@example.com.
