Libraries today are addressing the needs of users that live within food insecure neighborhoods and college campuses. Some of these libraries provide valuable resources and programming to support economically-challenged communities in areas classified as food deserts. Gardening at libraries can empower its patrons to grow their own foods.  Libraries that do not have the growing space can provide support to their patrons in other ways, come hear how you can support your students who live in food insecure communities.
