Today I put up a post on All Things Reconsidered about some of the driving forces behind the global food crisis. Take a look at it here.

Food insecurity, whether global or local, is one of the issues I devote a lot of time to through research and volunteering. For the past 2 years I have been venturing outside Penn’s campus to screen people for food-stamps because it is easy to forget that while Donald Trump’s daughter might be sitting next to you in class (yep, she went to Penn), there are hungry people 2 blocks away.

Here’s the report that Mary Summers of Penn’s Fox Leadership Program published a few years ago. It’s a little outdated now, but the findings and stats helped to convince me that the global food crisis isn’t only happening across the world, but next door too.
