Capital Public Radio and Valley Vision will host a community conversation to explore the topic of hunger in Sacramento.

Community leaders from the front lines of food insecurity will share stories as part of “Hunger in the Farm-to-Fork Capital.”

The free event is scheduled Wednesday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Clunie Community Center, 601 Alhambra Blvd., Sacramento. Registration is required.

Organizers will hold a second event June 3.

According to organizers, more than 6.2 million Californians don’t always know where their next meal is coming from. In Sacramento County, the figure hovers around 50,000.

Neighbors and community leaders will discuss why hunger is an important issue and suggest local solutions.

One question organizers will seek to answer is: Why are so many hungry in a region known for its agricultural abundance?
