Join us for the first event of this year's Peace & Justice week as we welcome back Food Not Bombs co-founder Keith McHenry.
Most people would elect to end hunger and poverty but many of the people running for office have another agenda, cutting social services while transferring our tax dollars to wealthy military contractors and their corporate friends. While elected officials cut social services like unemployment insurance, food stamps, education, health care and other basic necessities they are also passing laws against the poor and their supporters. Food Not Bombs is responding to this crisis by recovering, preparing and sharing vegan meals and groceries with the hungry in nearly 1,000 communities. This presentation will inspire you and your friends to join the Food Not Bombs movement and help our dedicated volunteers organize, implement and feed the global campaign to end hunger and poverty. You can make a difference!
Artist, author and activist Keith McHenry has been feeding the hungry for over 30 years and traveled all over the world speaking at colleges and conferences about Food Not Bombs and solutions to our social problems. Keith is excited to meet you and share his experiences.
This event is free and open to the campus community.
