Big Hunger – Solve Hunger by Solving Poverty @ Cintas Center
Sep 6 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

“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.”  Andrew Fisher

 

In Big Hunger, author Andrew 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 solving hunger. Join Catholic Charities with a small reception to welcome Andrew, hear his thoughts on solving poverty and listen to local experts talk about addressing poverty in Greater Cincinnati. A Q&A session will follow as well as an opportunity to buy Andrew’s book and have it signed.
