Speaker: Andy Fisher, author of Big Hunger
Originally designed as a temporary stop gap measure during hard times, food banks have become normalized and institutionalized elements of the social safety net. After 35+ years of food banking we continue to see persistent food insecurity and growing income inequality. This raises the question of what we should do differently and who benefits from the emergency food system. Andy Fisher will share his perspective as detailed in his recently published book Big Hunger: The Unholy Alliance between Corporate America and Anti-hunger Groups. Fisher will explore the power imbalance between giver and recipient, corporation and non-profit, within food charity as well as federal food programs. Examples of innovative approaches that are being implemented and models outside of the anti-hunger movement that can be translated to anti-hunger groups work will be shared to inspire the audience to take next steps in creating an equitable and sustainable food system.
Following the presentation, participants will be able to:

There are many kinds of poverty and different groups who are poor. Gaining an understanding of these differences can help us reach and teach those with limited resources. Although some statistics are provided, the focus is on stories and creating a deeper understanding.

What captures the interest of students? FOOD! Yes, food can be used to engage students in inquiry-based science — really! The Science and Our Food Supply Teacher Guides are challenging hands-on, minds-on activities that link food safety and nutrition to students' everyday lives. They are crafted in a teacher-friendly modular format that easily fit into science, health, and other classes.
The seminar will share the results of an assessment of the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) Marketplace for Nutritious Foods. Presenters from GAIN will provide context for the program, which works with small and medium enterprises to bring affordable nutritious food to market, and highlight challenges and achievements in measuring the impact of its programming after four years of operation in Kenya, Rwanda, and Mozambique.
