The Agroecosystems Management Program of the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center of the College of Food, Agricultral, and Environmental Sciences welcomes Mark Winne, Co-founder of the Community Food Security Coalition, and a Kellogg Foundation Food and Society Fellow. He wil present Inequality, Economic Justice, and the Road to Food Security: A Special Seminar at the Kirwan Institute.
The history of efforts to achieve food security, reduce obesity, and make healthy food accessible to all has been long and convoluted. In spite of extraordinary efforts by communities, non-profit organizations, and all levels of government, success has been mixed. This talk will consider both the roles of economic inequality and the weak collaboration among food system stakeholders as causes for our lackluster progress.
Mark Winne is Author of: Closing the Food Gap: Resetting the Table in the Land of Plenty and Food Rebels, Guerrilla Gardeners, and Smart Cookin’ Mamas.
This event is co-sponsored by the Kirwan Institute and the John Glenn College of Public Affairs.
