Project Description

We are overwhelmed with opportunities and the only thing that goes faster than time is an opportunity!

Listen in to Food First tonight as Dr. Phil Knight and Gerry Brisson discuss the three principles of great partnerships – shared priorities, shared pain, and shared payment. These principles are key in every partnership from individual relationships to multifaceted collaborations.

Phil and Gerry explore the shared priorities, pain, and payment in the food bank network’s collaborations with the healthcare system. When hunger is taken off the table in a household everyone is healthier. The priority of creating food security in Michigan through greater access to healthy and nutritious food aligns with the triple aim of healthcare which is better health, better care, and lower cost. Listen in to find out how the priorities align and what opportunities for additional collaboration with the education system are ahead!
