Elect to End Hunger & Poverty Tour with Keith McHenry

2:30pm until 5:30pm
Carleton University, Mackenzie Building Rm. 4494

Come out to OPIRG-Carleton's fall colloquium as we host Food Not Bombs' campaign to end hunger and poverty. FNB co-founder Keith McHenry will share the story, principles and current activities of the movement. Keith will also invite the audience to participate with their local activist groups.

Most people would elect to end hunger and poverty, but many of the people running for office have another agenda, cutting social services while transferring our tax dollars to wealthy military contractors and their

corporate friends. While elected officials cut social services like unemployment insurance, food stamps, education, health care and other basic necessities they are also passing laws against the poor and their supporters. Food prices are increasing as crops fail from drought and the climate crisis. Many fear hunger will increase leading to civil unrest and violent police repression.

Food Not Bombs is responding to the economic, ecological and political crisis by recovering, preparing and sharing vegan meals and groceries with the hungry in nearly 1,000 communities.

This event is completely free.
