“I believe in a healthy community and the work Marion Polk Food Share is doing. There is an overwhelming body of evidence regarding the relationship between food and health. By partnering to end hunger, improve nutrition, and reduce the chronic disease burden in our population, we will make a difference in the lives of individuals and their families.”
