Montgomery County Food Council Visits American Diversity Group

On Friday, December 9th, the American Diversity Group (ADG) hosted a tour of its Silver Spring clinic site for the Montgomery County Food Council, County Councilmembers, and Councilmember staff. Our gracious host, Mayur Mody, provided attendees with the opportunity to learn more about ADG and the excellent work that it is doing in the community.

ADG is able to provide these services in partnership with numerous local healthcare personnel who volunteer their time on the weekends to see patients for free at the clinics.

We were honored to be joined by County Councilmembers Kristin Mink (District 5) and Laurie-Anne Sayles (At-Large), Councilmember legislative staff Mary LaBella Gies, Victoria Tajzai, and Sylvia Tognetti; Food Council Members Gabriela Massie from the Capital Area Food Bank and Angela Whitmal from Manna Food Center; Steve Corrozi from Manna Food Bank; and Food Council staff members Heather Bruskin, Annmarie Hart-Bookbinder, Danielle Nwogu, and Elizabeth Teuwen.
