Addressing Root Causes Of Food Insecurity

We've  identified that there is a dominant narrative around hunger, specifically,  and that often it can perpetuate the very conditions of poverty and hunger. --Stephanie Solomon

Today on our show, as promised we have a conversation about what it means to challenge the dominant narratives around hunger in the United States, and why some emergency food providers are looking at root causes of food insecurity as they face growing numbers of people seeking food assistance.

Amanda Nickey and Stephanie Solomon of Mother Hubbard's Cupboard, a Community Food Resource Center in Bloomington Indiana join us in the studio, and we couldn't fit it all into one episode! This is the first installment of a two part series.

You can listen to Part II here.
