Lunch(less) & Learn workshops!

We're excited to announce that Common Heart is hosting a series of FREE Lunch(less) & Learn workshops on the first Wednesday of every month.  

The workshops, which start next Wednesday (Sept. 2) will be from Noon to 1 pm and will be based on Bridges Out of Poverty which is a framework to understand poverty and promote individual and community transformation. Keith Adams, Common Heart Executive Director and member of the Steering Committee for Thrive! Union, will be sharing this vital information.

Next week's workshop is called "The Lenses by Which We See the World."  In this one-hour workshop we will explore mental models and how we as individuals approach our understanding of community sustainability and poverty.  The goal is to understand ourselves, our community, and our part in the community and how we can act as agents of change.

Please join us for this introductory workshop! Whether you are a concerned citizen, leader in business or government, social worker or educator, policeman or nurse, you will come away with a better understanding of those in our community who struggle and how to work toward increased economic mobility and sustainability in our community.

This workshop is a part of Common Heart's Economic Empowerment programs.

For over 14 years, Common Heart has provided the basics of food to those in our county who face food insecurity.  Four years ago we began our Economic Empowerment focus through the Bridges Out of Poverty framework and have become a community advocate empowering the lives and voices of those living in or near poverty in our community. 

When the stay at home order was issued during March of 2020 we shifted back to the basics of food insecurity.  Knowing the economic aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic was going to be deep and hit those who have been struggling the most the hardest, we are seeking to get ahead of the game restarting and increasing our focus on Economic Empowerment in the fall of 2020.
