Women and Hunger: Putting Food on the Table

Event Date: March 08, 2013 - 7:30 a.m.
Location: Simmons College, Paresky Conference Center, 300 the Fenway, Boston

In celebration of the 16th annual International Women's Day celebration, McCormack Graduate School's Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy cosponsors this event. The Center for Social Policy is also a supporting organization.

Hunger should not be a women's issue, but in the United States, more women and children go hungry than in any other demographic group.  Households with low food security are often headed by single women. 

Join us for an engaging and informative discussion on the issue of women and hunger.

UMass Boston's Amani El-Jack, assistant professor of women's studies, will be the moderator and Randy Albelda, professor of economics and senior research fellow at the Center for Social Policy is one of the featured panelists.

7:30-9:30 AM
