Your Call: What will it take to end hunger in the US?


Anti-hunger activist Andy Fisher joins us to discuss his new book, Big Hunger: The Unholy Alliance between Corporate America and Anti-Hunger Groups.

Fisher says by not coupling short-term hunger relief with structural reform, anti-hunger leaders have reinforced the false notion that hunger can be solved through charity. He details consequences of the anti-hunger movement’s reliance on corporate donations of food and money. How effective has the anti-hunger movement been?
