Big Hunger: Book Event and Discussion with Author Andy Fisher

 

 

 

Location: La Peña Cultural Center

3105 Shattuck Avenue, Berkeley, California 94705

 

 

The 2016 election reminded us of the depth of economic insecurity across America, and of the political implications that come from ignoring this populist angst. The decline of Rust Belt communities since the 1980s has been paralleled by the rapid growth of food banks. Instead of challenging the government and corporations to provide living wages and good jobs, to support unions and oppose globalization, the anti-hunger movement has instead built alliances with Walmart, Tyson, and Monsanto, among other socially irresponsible companies. Big Hunger reveals the damage caused by this hunger-industrial complex, and offers a new vision for the anti-hunger movement to eliminate hunger through a focus on health, economic justice and local economies.

 


Join Big Hunger author Andy Fisher and Food First for a lively meet-and-greet, book-signing, and discussion.
