All are welcome for the Food Sovereignty/Food Justice program about global hunger and how to combat the issue in today’s society.
It will be presented by William Schanbacher, PhD, professor of religious studies at the University of South Florida.
He will also discuss why local farmers and businesses produce better quality food and why it’s an effective alternative.
The first of three meetings will be held on June 16 at 5:30. It will take place at Bruton Memorial Library, 302 McLendon St., Plant City.
The two other dates will be on July 25 and Aug. 17 at the same time and place.
Around the world an estimated 811 million people do not have access to an adequate amount of food, and 48.9 million people are facing emergency levels of hunger, according to the World Food Programme.
Parts of Yemen, Sudan, Ethiopia, and Nigeria are either in a famine or on the verge.
