    On February 20, 2018, the Hunger Free Golden Community Collaborative hosted a community conversation to encourage engaged community members to work together and come up with ideas and potential solutions to reduce barriers to food which would ultimately influence future priorities of the Hunger Free Golden Community Collaborative.
