Food and democracy

On Saturday November 11th it hosted a screening of the documentary “A Place at the Table”, which explores how hunger poses serious economic, social and cultural implications for our nation, and how it could be solved once and for all.


Liz Black, a member of the LWVBC Social Policy Team, told Rossana Longo Better that the food security series is in keeping with the League of Women Voters’ history of expanding people’s understanding of how to make democracy more receptive and responsive to the needs of all Americans. The LWVBC’s  Social Policy Team is working to insert the issue of food security into this conversation.  “Hear and learn from the experts, why this is an issue not only in our own community but affected by the policies at the state and national level.”


The next event in the series is on Saturday , November 18th, 2018 at 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm, at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Boulder.


The panelists include:


Terri Livermore, Food Systems Policy Director with Live Well Colorado

Liz Rowland, Food Bank Manager at the Emergency Family Assistance Association (EFAA)

Lindsey Loberg of Boulder Food Rescue

Kathy Underhill, CEO of Hunger Free Colorado

Alison Brisnehan, Boulder County Dept of Housing and Human Services


- Rossana Longo Better is the KGNU/League of Women Voters Boulder County public policy/media intern.
