RU’s Center for New Deal Studies Hosts Food Justice Lecture on Feb. 25

Join the Center for New Deal Studies at Roosevelt University for a lecture on the food justice movement, Tuesday, Feb. 25 at 5:30 p.m. in AUD 244 (Spertus Lounge) at RU’s Chicago Campus. Young Kim, executive director of the Fondy Food Center, presents “Working With, Not Working On: Reflections on Milwaukee’s Food Desert.”

During the Great Depression, Americans grappled with hunger and malnourishment at the same time that the government struggled with questions of food production and distribution. Sadly, many of these problems have resurfaced as the nation copes with the effects of the Great Recession and a growing inequality of wealth. Young Kim explores efforts to work with communities facing food insecurity in the 21st century. Light refreshments will be served.
