Slotkin’s first stop was Torch 180 in Fowlerville, a food-service training company that provides food-industry training for adults with disabilities. It’s a partner organization of The Torch, a Michigan- and California-based nonprofit that uses a food truck to prepare, cook and serve free hot meals in neighborhoods where there are people in need, as well as catering trucks to deliver free groceries to impoverished neighborhoods.

Slotkin first visited Torch 180 two years ago, when its current facility was under construction. While there, Slotkin had lunch and presented them with a certificate of special congressional recognition.

Slotkin then visited the Howell Carnegie District Library, where Director Holly Ward Lamb gave her a tour and talked about how the pandemic changed life, and how the library adapted to keep serving the community to the best of its ability.
