Andrew Fisher, author of Big Hunger
Food banks and food pantries were meant to be a stopgap measure, but manufacturing jobs never came back, recessions followed, and the "emergency food system" became an industry.
In Big Hunger, author Andrew Fisher argues that many key anti-hunger advocates are missing an essential element of the problem: economic inequality driven by low wages. His research finds that efforts to end hunger, reduce obesity, and reform farm subsidies are compromised by corporate interests.
Encouragingly, Big Hunger sets forth a vision of for what we can do to put food banks out of business and solve hunger.
