Food Insecurity in Tennessee and the Nation
“Why can’t we feed everyone? This is the United States!” You’ve donated or received food assistance during the pandemic, will the need ever end? In this two-part episode, you’ll hear from a local community group that uses unused food portions to feed people in their area, and from the Tennessee Justice Center, which defines and discusses the reasons for food insecurity. What can we do to alleviate it now and eliminate it post-pandemic?
Rick Wright, Director of Dining Services University of the South
Rev. David Goodpaster, Director of Otey Memorial Parish’s Community Action Committee
Signe Anderson Director of Nutritional Advocacy at Tennessee Justice Center
