Missouri Food Security Coalition Meeting

Empower Missouri would like to thank everyone that was able to attend the July and August Food Security Coalition meetings. Please plan to join our next meeting on  Friday, September 18th at 9am. 

Debate on a package of federal coronavirus relief is expected during the week of September 7, so we will have an update to share. In addition, new U.S. Census data related to poverty, income, and health insurance coverage will be released on September 15 and 17, enabling us to provide very timely evidence to policymakers about challenges to households related to food security.

Again, the next meeting will be Friday, September 18, at 9am. Register HERE for the meeting.


Deborah Weinstein has been Executive Director of the Coalition on Human Needs since 2003.  Prior to that, she served 9 years as Director of the Family Income Division at the Children’s Defense Fund, after a decade as Executive Director at the Massachusetts Human Services Coalition.

In her four decades of advocacy experience, Debbie has brought groups together from across the nation to fight for fair and commonsense federal and state budgets.
