PEM Dialogues: Food and Wellness in our Community

Wednesday, April 28, 2021 from 4–5 pm

Last fall, PEM, The Salem Pantry, and The Fish Family Foundation joined forces to address food insecurity in our community. We know that eating well impacts the health of our bodies and minds, but one of the challenges to our collective well-being is that many do not have access to healthy food. In this conversation we will discuss how food impacts our physical and mental wellness, as well as ways that we can help address some of our community's challenges in this area. We will learn more about inequities in access to affordable and nutritious food, the important work of The Salem Pantry, and how eating well is essential to being well. We hope you can join us!

Join us for a forum exploring how we can work together to combat food insecurity.

Panelists include: Robyn Burns, Executive Director, The Salem Pantry; Jelivet Perez, Civic Engagement and Public Programs Coordinator, Peabody Essex Museum; Siddhartha V. Shah, PEM’s Director of Education and Civic Engagement, Curator of South Asian Art. Moderated by Blair Steck, Director of Inclusive Philanthropy, Peabody Essex Museum.
