AARP Massachusetts led an important conversation on October 14 on food insecurity during a pandemic in the Hispanic/Latino Community. Along with African-Americans, Hispanic/Latino populations have the highest unemployment rates and are disproportionately affected by lack of quality supermarkets in their community.

Speakers:

  • Rev. Alejandro Lopez-Cardinale, St. Benedict Church
  • Victor Matta, Fresh Truck Market Manager
  • Gladys Vega, Executive Director, Chelsea Collaborative

The event was moderated by Jorge Quiroga, former WCVB-TV news reporter and current AARP Massachusetts Executive Council Member.
