Town Hall meeting addresses food security, globalization

World experts Vandana Shiva, Kenneth Hackett and Juliet Zavon lead discussion


In America, where food is plentiful, it's difficult to understand how nearly two billion people living in hunger represent a security threat to us. This was the topic of discussion at a town hall meeting being held at the Schiff Family Conference Center on Sunday, April 17, from 7:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.

Three leading world experts on the subject are commenting on this growing global crisis. The panel included Vandana Shiva, international governmental organization leader; Kenneth Hackett, president of Catholic Relief Services; and Juliet A. Zavon, international consultant for the food production/food industry.

This event was sponsored by The Edward B. Brueggeman Center for Dialogue, Ethics/Religion and Society Program, Gender and Diversity Studies, Center for Business Ethics and Corporate Responsibility, The AFL-CIO, World Affairs Council of Greater Cincinnati, Southern Ohio District Export Council, The Procter & Gamble Fund and Cinergy Foundation.
