The tour stopped in Cortland County at September 17&18.

There was a poverty simulation followed by insights and thoughtful discussion – what a great group!

On the morning of the 18th, there was a community forum on “Silent Crisis – Hunger  in Cortland County” at the Conference Center on Port Watson Street.

Thank you to Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton, Mayor Brian Tobin, Luann King representing Sen. Seward, Karla Digirolamo from NYSCAA, Sister Cathleen from Rural Services, Billie MacNabb from DSS and Gary Dallaire (2 not pictured) for helping us make the discussion successful.
