The Emerging Leaders Class of 2023 had an incredible visit with Feeding Westchester last Thursday, August 3rd. 

It was so meaningful for the class to learn from our two amazing ELP Class of 2022 alums, Martine Campoli and Christopher McGregor, who led a fun discussion on logical fallacies. The class was honored to hear from Karen Erren, FW CEO and NPW Board Member, who gave an overview on food insecurity in our county, and got the whole group fully engaged in a critical thinking discussion.   


The class also got a behind-the-scenes warehouse tour and was even able to see the new expanded section of the distribution center. Plus - everyone loved the healthy cooking demonstration and the delicious vegetable and fruit salsa - thank you Monique Marshall and Alyssa Advincula! The fresh produce to take home was so appreciated too. We can't thank the whole team at Feeding Westchester enough for such a memorable event!
