The 13th annual Montgomery County Food Summit is taking place on Thursday, Nov. 16, from 8 a.m. to noon at Sinclair. This free event is about highlighting local resources to fight food insecurity and coming together to find more ways to make a difference. The Summit also recognizes community members and organizations who have positively impacted our local food system.


This year's keynote speaker, Dr. Darriel Harris, is a pastor in Baltimore. Dr. Harris is dedicated to advancing food equity and improving health. In 2021, he was named the inaugural Cynthia and Robert S. Lawrence Fellow at the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future. He has also developed a faith-based curriculum for healthy eating that's been used in more than 25 Baltimore churches, and he's worked as a health missionary in South Sudan.
