Just released! We are excited to share a new report and video made in collaboration with WhyHunger, a member of the Closing the Hunger Gap Leadership Team, and food access organizations that participated in the recent national Closing the Hunger Gap “Cultivating Food Justice” Conference. This Special Report: America’s Food Banks Say Charity Won’t End Hunger calls for a transformation from charity to justice and explores the growing conversation among food access organizations that ending hunger will take much more than food distribution. When the goal is to transform the systems and policies that perpetuate hunger, what role do emergency food providers play in achieving long-term change? How are resources allocated and how is success measured? Why is a focus on social justice essential?
Listen to voices from the conference – including Community Food Bank, Sisters Of The Road, Village Gardens, Janus Youth Programs, The Stop Community Food Centre, and Emily Becker from the Oregon Food Bank – on KBOO Community Radio‘s Food Show. The CTHG part starts about 20 minutes in to the program.
