Four years ago, NACo convened county leaders to discuss two-generation (2Gen) approaches to service delivery and poverty reduction, placing families at the center of program design and purposefully connecting services to work together seamlessly to help parents and children achieve success together. In the intervening years, counties have made strides in developing, funding and implementing 2Gen strategies in human services and education. During this roundtable discussion, national experts, county leaders and individuals with lived experience will discuss the progress they have made, what they need for further success and how their peers can replicate these efforts.

Food Security as a Driver of Economic Mobility: Strategies for Local Governments

June 16, 2022

Thursday, June 16, 2022 | 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time

While a wide range of factors contributes to an individual’s economic mobility or movement up and down the economic ladder, the ties between food insecurity and economic inequality are demonstrated. Individuals who experience a lack of food security face mental and physical health consequences that can directly impact their employment status, use of the health care system, and other factors that impact upward mobility. Cities and counties are working to improve the food security of residents by integrating local efforts across jurisdictions and working with key community partners to enhance food production, transportation, and distribution. In partnership with National League of Cities, this webinar will feature an expert overview of the state of food insecurity in the United States as well as example solutions from both cities and counties.
