Hunger gap: Confronting food insecurity with food sovereignty (formerly know as the hunger banquet)    

Group gathered for an event

Date: April 1, 2021

Location: Virtual

Contact: socialimpact@uvu.edu

Description: The Hunger Gap is an event that was inspired by the work of the Hunger Banquet. Instead of creating awareness of poverty and its effects on communities, it shifts the critiques of hunger to a systemic level and seeks to highlight the role of activists and community organizers in confronting food insecurity. Therefore, rather than experiencing hunger we hope that participants can gain knowledge of the systems in place that create gaps around access to food and get to hear from people who are actively challenging those gaps.
