When Is a Free Lunch a Good Idea

Sunday, February 3, 2019 at 2:00pm to 3:30pm

Kennedy Hall, Call Auditorium

Did you know, in the last decade we have been able to reduce acute hunger substantially and yet famine and malnutrition continue to plague our world? Where do we go from here? Join this roundtable discussion as we explore our options about the use of food and money to alleviate hunger in developing countries. Hear about the complexity involved in addressing global hunger, discussing the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches.

4 Cornell chaplaincies (Chesterton House, Hillel, Lutheran Student Fellowship, And the Muslim Educational and Cultural Association), have come together along with community members from The Ithaca Mobile Pack, with the generous support of the Wood Grant, to have a hunger roundtable event. Speakers at the Roundtable include Mark Crea the executive director of Feed My Starving Children, and Matthew Muraski who supports that agency’s work in Africa, Prof. Christopher Barrett from the Dyson school, Ted Miles formally with Catholic Relief Services the new executive director for Maryknoll Lay Missioners, and professor emeritus Joe Regenstein who will serve as moderator.

Attendees will be able to submit questions about the complexities of working to alleviate global hunger; refreshments to follow.
