Big Hunger, The Unholy Alliance between Corporate America and Anti-Hunger Groups

In Big Hunger, author Andy Fisher argues that many anti-hunger advocates miss an essential element of the problem: economic inequality driven by low wages. Encouragingly, Big Hunger sets forth a vision for what we can do to address poverty to solve hunger.

"We have pretended that the problem is hunger and not poverty. We’ve pretended that the solution to hunger is charity, not ensuring the right to food or increasing the political power of the poor." Andy Fisher

Following Andy's talk he will join a panel of local community leaders who are working to address poverty. These leaders are: Giovanna Alvarez, Director of the Su Casa Hispanic Center; Ted Bergh, CEO of Catholic Charities; Michael Johnson, President and CEO of the United Way of Greater Cincinnati; Kurt Reiber, President/CEO of the Cincinnati Freestore Foodbank, and Moira Weir, Director, Hamilton County Job and Family Services. Together they will address how we can address poverty in our community and answer questions. Learn more.
