Hunger Action Month! #EIUHungerChallenge
At my institution, November is Hunger Action Month – known more familiarly as the EIU Hunger Challenge (#EIUHungerChallenge). An amazing student group, the Hunger Action Team, in coordination with our office of Student Community Service, plan a month-long series of events to educate, empower, and activate students, staff, faculty, and the broader community understand poverty and food insecurity at the local, regional, state, and national levels.
Each year during the hunger challenge, I give several public lectures and presentations on poverty and food insecurity, as well as do some type of discussion around a documentary film.
I will be posting the presentation files so they can be read and shared for those who were able to attend the lectures, and for those who could not join us; the first of which, given on 4-Nov-2014, is available here.
Below is the calendar of events for the entire month!
