“Charity is not justice charity is what a society does when there is no justice.” --Andy Fisher

On today’s show, our conversation with Andy Fisher, author of Big Hunger: The Unholy Alliance between Corporate America and Anti-Hunger Groups. 

We’ve had Amanda Nickey and Stephanie Solomon on Earth Eats, talking about food pantries addressing root causes of hunger, and Angela Babb has helped us look at some of the interesting configurations around government food aid, SNAP and Big Ag.

Andy Fisher takes us further in this thought-provoking discussion.

And  Harvest Public Media reports on flooded farmland in the heartland.

Music on this episode:

Solitude by Brandon Davis/The Electric Set

The Earth Eats’ theme music is composed by Erin Tobey and performed by Erin and Matt Tobey.
