Presenter: 
Bernie Fowler, Jr., Farming 4 Hunger
Description/Notes: 

Farming 4 Hunger (F4H) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed in 2012 to serve those in need of fresh food in Southern Maryland. The organization grows and distributes over a million pounds of locally grown, fresh food each year.

Bernie Fowler Jr., founder, had a vision through his own personal struggles to help people in his hometown gain better access to fresh fruits and vegetables. F4H accomplishes its mission through unique partnerships with 27 local farms, 20+ churches, local businesses and schools, the Maryland Food Bank, the Department of Corrections, and a great network of community volunteers.

Mr. Fowler will provide a snapshot of his organization and how it ties agriculture, community and second chances together. Through stories, photos, and videos, he will share interviews of individuals affected by the work on the farm, including the UMD football team!
