The MIT Press Bookstore and Project Bread present anti-hunger activist Andrew Fisher discussing his book Big Hunger: The Unholy Alliance Between Corporate America and Anti-Hunger Groups, at 6:00 pm on Monday, May 1, at the Bookstore.
Food banks and food pantries have proliferated in response to economic emergency. This was meant to be a stopgap measure, but manufacturing jobs never came back, recession followed, and the “emergency food system” became an industry. In Big Hunger, Fisher argues that anti-hunger advocates are missing an essential element of the problem: economic inequality driven by low wages. He takes a critical look at the business of hunger and offers a new vision for the anti-hunger movement.
