Student Lunch and Dialogue: The Right to Food in the United States

Contemporary Issues and Historic Struggles 

Please join us for a stimulating discussion with Smita Narula who will share insights from her research and experience working on the right to food in the United States and around the world. One in six Americans lives in a household that cannot afford adequate food. Of these 49 million individuals, nearly 17 million are children. Narula is co-author and director of a recent study on the subject, entitled Nourishing Change: Fulfilling the Right to Food in the United States. The study calls for a rights-based approach to addressing the plight of millions of Americans living in poverty today, and is the first of its kind to squarely address widespread food insecurity in the United States in human rights terms. Narula will discuss the findings of the study, and will connect these contemporary issues to historic struggles for human rights in the United States.

Lunch will be provided - seats are limited.

Date: Wednesday, September 10 
Time: 1:15 - 2:45 pm
Place: Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute, Second Floor Classroom
49 East 65th Street between Park and Madison Avenues

This event is for students only. Students who wish to attend must RSVP with the Human Rights Program Associate, Steffan Horowitz at shoro@hunter.cuny.edu.
