A special event is happening this Friday that helps deserving communities get what they need to thrive.
The Essex County Community Foundation is hosting The Essex County Food Ecosystem: a NextLevel Hackathon.
Our own Anna Rossi is hosting the event, where legislators, food leaders, and others will use their diverse perspectives to think of longterm solutions to food insecurity in the area.
During the evening, participants will enjoy locally-sourced food and cocktails catered by Salem’s Root.
