Raj Patel: Stuffed and Starved

Raj Patel, Activist, Academic, Author, Stuffed and Starved and The Value of Nothing

This program is being postponed. Check back for new date soon.

Half the world is malnourished, the other half obese. Why is there such a large discrepancy between the haves and the have-nots for what we all need: food? Patel conducts a global investigation to make sense of the world food crisis and finds that “the food system is filled with choices made by a handful of powerful people, in smoke-filled rooms, over the objections of the majority.” Hear his story of nefarious false choices and of international resistance movements that take you from seed to store to plate.
