Description

"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

Andy Fisher, co-founder of the Community Food Security Coalition in the US and author of the new book, Big Hunger: The Unholy Alliance Between Corporate America & Anti-Hunger Groups, joins IFAN and a panel of experts for a debate about the politics of hunger in the 21st Century and the role corporations play.

Panel members:

- Tara Osman, North Paddington Foodbank & creator of Food Bank As It Is
- Dr Andrew Williams, Cardiff University
- Mohammed Mamdani, Sufra Food Bank (TBC)
- Chris Sunderland, Real Economy

Chaired by Prof. Jon May, Chair of the Independent Food Aid Network

Tickets are FREE to IFAN members and £5 for everyone else. All proceeds will go towards the work of IFAN.
