Patricia Allen Speaks on Closing the Hunger Gap

Dr. Patricia Allen, chair of the Department of Food Systems & Society, will be a keynote speaker at the Closing the Hunger Gap: Cultivating Food Security conference in Tucson in September 2013.

The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona hosts this strategic conference on Closing the Hunger Gap to continue conversations and develop local and national strategies on the topic of food security and the future of hunger. Attendees include food bank CEOs, program managers and assistants, farmers, growers, educators, public policy staff and community leaders interested in food security and food justice.

Dr. Patricia Allen's work focuses on the political economic structures that can constrain or enable social equity in sustainable food systems. In her 2004 book, Together at the Table: Sustainability and Sustenance in the American Agrifood System, she reviews social movements and alternative agrifood institutions in the United States.
