Enhance your reading of Fr. Gregory Boyle’s Tattoos on the Heart (the Hayward Library’s Mostly Literary Fiction book group’s October selection) with a discussion about ending hunger and homelessness in our local community. What lessons can we learn from Homeboy Industries for local campaigns to generate jobs and vocational training opportunities? Find out how to take concrete steps to end crisis and increase productivity and stability in Hayward and Alameda County, and  how to take simple actions to decrease food waste and increase access to healthy meals.

Panelists include Suzan Bateson, Executive Director of the Alameda County Food Bank; Elaine de Coligny, Executive Director of EveryOne Home; and individuals who have faced hunger and homelessness in Hayward.
