Last week, USDA’s Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships led a webinar to share with local faith and community leaders opportunities to partner with USDA to help those in need in their communities. This webinar was the first in a series entitled, Together We Can. The series aims to equip organizations with introductory knowledge, best practices, and contact information to help community-based organizations understand and access USDA programs.
During the call more than 200 people learned about the goals of USDA Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships and how they can partner with USDA. The Center aims to increase awareness of, and access to USDA nutrition assistance programs by partnering with faith- and community-based organizations working to end hunger and encourage healthy lifestyles in their communities. The webinar also provided an introduction to USDA Rural Development programs and Let’s Move Faith and Communities. Listeners were encouraged to partner with USDA to better help those in need in their communities.
