2018 Hunger Banquet

Social Action and Integrative Learning

Wednesday, November 14, 2018 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Johnson Center, George's - Third Floor

You may think hunger is about too many people and too little food. That is not the case. Our rich and bountiful planet produces enough food to feed every woman, man, and child on earth. Hunger is about power. Its roots lie in inequalities in access to resources. The results are illiteracy, poverty, war, and the in- ability of families to grow or buy food.
