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.
