The Right to Food
How Can the Right to Food Inform Emergency Food in the US?
On March 17th, 2015, WhyHunger hosted a webinar on the Right to Food and how the human rights framework can inform emergency food in the US. We discussed: how WhyHunger engages around the Right to Food, ensuring emergency food is provided with dignity, and the Right to Food framework and how it can inspire action. Speakers included Nadia Lambek, a public interest lawyer who served as an advisor to former UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, Olivier De Schutter; Stephanie Solomon, Director of Education and Outreach at Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard in Bloomington, IN; Jessica Powers, Director of the Nourish Network for the Right to Food at WhyHunger; and Alison Cohen, Senior Director of Programs at WhyHunger. Full bios are available here.
