WISCAP chooses ‘Big Hunger’ for the staff pick of January.
Food banks and food pantries were meant to be a stopgap measure, but manufacturing jobs never came back, recession followed, and the “emergency food system” became an industry.
In Big Hunger, author Andrew Fisher argues that many key anti-hunger advocates are missing an essential element of the problem: economic inequality driven by low wages. His research finds that efforts to end hunger, reduce obesity, and reform farm subsidies are compromised by corporate interests.
Encouragingly, Big Hunger sets forth a vision for what we can do to put food banks out of business and solve hunger.
