Food Security and the Fall Harvest

As harvest time rolls around, a lot of colleges and universities are turning their attention toward food security. In the U.S., this generally means shopping at farmers’ markets and promoting farmers’ rights as students attempt to learn the complex inner workings of our country’s food system. Internationally, food issues are even more interwoven and complicated.

Globalize your understanding on food security and what it would take to end world hunger by attending the Global Solidarity Network’s online leaning session, as advertised here. This session builds upon CRS’s 2014 Caritas Internationalis campaign of One Human Family, Food for All (see video below).

Did you know that there is an entire organization dedicated to the betterment of Catholic rural America? Catholic Rural Life (CRL) has a Food & Justice study guide as well as additional resources available on their website.
