“Big Hunger” Book Talk

6:00 pm — 8:00 pm

Andrew Fisher discusses “Big Hunger: The Unholy Alliance between Corporate America and Anti-Hunger Groups,” presented in partnership with the Seminary Co-op Bookstores. About the book: Food banks and food pantries have proliferated in response to an economic emergency. The loss of manufacturing jobs combined with the recession of the early 1980s and Reagan administration cutbacks in federal programs led to an explosion in the growth of food charity. This was meant to be a stopgap measure, but the jobs never came back, and the “emergency food system” became an industry. In “Big Hunger,” Andrew Fisher takes a critical look at the business of hunger and offers a new vision for the anti-hunger movement.
