Strengthening Communities: Food Access at Your Library

This webinar will share examples of library food access initiatives including seed libraries, community gardens and farmers markets.

Libraries across the country are increasingly working to address food insecurity in their local communities. Presenters from the South Carolina State Library, University of South Carolina Arnold School of Public Health SNAP-Ed program, and Richland Library will provide examples of library food access initiatives including seed libraries, community gardens and farmers markets. Guidance will be provided on how to start food access initiatives with limited local partnership options, few staff and limited resources in rural, urban and suburban settings. The session will also explore how two statewide organizations support local libraries in this work through technical assistance and funding.  

Presented by: Ashley Page Bookhart, MSW, SNAP-Ed Program Coordinator, Arnold School of Public Health, University of South Carolina; Carrie Draper, MSW, Senior Research Associate, Department of Health Promotion, Education, and Behavior, University of South Carolina Arnold School of Public Health; and Rebecca Antill, Youth Services Consultant, Library Development, South Carolina State Library
