"We Are Not Trash: A March for the Future of Dallas." Paul Quinn College is sponsoring a march this coming Saturday, November 5, at 10 am to highlight the divided city and its impact on Southern Dallas. Food deserts, like the Highland Hills neighborhood where PQC resides, suffer other maladies, like the proposed expansion of the McCommas Bluff Landfill to become one of the largest in the Southwest region of the United States. The march from Oak Cliff Founders Park to Ferris Plaza in downtown Dallas intends to call for city officials and citizens to view Dallas as ONE city, which means all citizens deserve effective representative leadership and access to safe and affordable healthy food. To register for the march, please call the event chairwoman Elizabeth Wattley at 214-379-5457.
The Texas No Kid Hungry Summit sponsored by the Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson, will occur on the morning of November 9 here in Dallas. Our president, Stacy Cherones, will make a presentation based on our research in South Dallas. The Hunger Summit kicks off the No Kid Hungry campaign in North Texas, seeking to end childhood hunger in North Texas by 2015.
