Join Food Finders Food Bank for our new luncheon series, Nourish & Knowledge.
We invite community members to enjoy a healthy lunch and learn from national and local experts about how to fight hunger in our own backyard, improve food security among low-resource populations, limit food waste with retail pick-up programs, and the future of hunger relief in North Central Indiana.
Nourish & Knowledge will be the second Thursday of the month from 11:30am-1:30pm
Topic: Non-Toxic Charities
In recent years, there has been a trend to label some charities “toxic” implying that they discourage able-bodied people from seeking employment and becoming self-sufficient. Katy Bunder, Food Finders CEO, will discuss the myths and realities of this theory and offer advice on differentiating between a toxic and non-toxic charity.
Bio: Katy Bunder was raised in Arkansas and educated in Virginia. She moved to West Lafayette in 1985 when her husband, Peter, accepted a position as the Episcopal Chaplain to Purdue.

Katy received her B.A. in politics from Randolph-Macon Woman’s College in 1980 and her M. Ed. in counseling from the University of Virginia in 1985.
