Food partnership event at Bettendorf library Oct. 26


DAVENPORT — World Affairs Council of the Quad Cities (WACQC), and Bettendorf Public Library (BPL) are co-sponsoring an event, “Global Gathering II: The Food Partnership of the Quad Cities.”

The Food Rescue Partnership is a Quad Cities coalition that promotes rescuing food for its best possible use. Their work is directly propelled through collaboration to educate and facilitate outcomes that touch the lives and well-being of everyone in the Quad Cities community.

Diverting food waste from landfills, while simultaneously addressing food insecurity provides a unique opportunity to solve multiple concerns in one message.

This free event will be held in the Bettendorf Public Library on Tuesday, Oct. 26 at 7 p.m. Because of COVID-19, the Bettendorf Public Library requires that non-vaccinated individuals wear a mask, while vaccinated individuals are strongly encouraged to wear a mask.
