Trudy Novicki shares Florida Impact’s vision and missionMissions and Outreach Photo Essays
Tuesday evening, the Florida Conference hosted a Lakeland “friend raiser” for Florida Impact, the 30 plus year-old organization that is dedicated to securing economic justice in our state by reducing hunger and poverty. Impact’s Director Trudy Novicki shared its mission with attendees: to mobilize communities to increase access to federal food, nutrition and other economic support programs. Director of Connectional and Justice Ministries Sharon Austin introduced Novicki and facilitated discussion after the presentation.
The event’s purpose was to raise awareness of Florida Impact’s work. The conference partners with them during Children’s Week and Florida Advocacy Days.
Since 1979, Florida Impact has helped community leaders secure more responsive public programs and policies to address hunger. Efforts have led to the statewide establishment of the School Breakfast Program when school is in; and the After School Meal (AMP) and Summer Food Service (SFSP) programs, when school is out.
