COA Summer Institute: Hungry to Learn
July 29 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Soledad O’Brien speaks with Ambassador Phil Lader about her documentary, “Hungry to Learn,” as part of College of the Atlantic’s 2021 Summer Institute: Good Food and Food Fights.
In 2019, almost 14 million U.S. households were food insecure, according to the USDA — and that was before the pandemic. But there are even more shocking statistics: 45 percent of college students report struggling with hunger, and there are 650 food pantries on college campuses. Soledad O’Brien speaks with Ambassador Phil Lader about her documentary, “Hungry to Learn,” which profiles students so strapped by college tuition, they don’t have enough money to eat.
College of the Atlantic’s Summer Institute is a week-long ideas festival that welcomes leaders from around the world to share their expertise and thoughts on the most pressing issues of our time. This year’s theme is Good Food and Food Fights. During the week, we will explore all aspects of food — production, policy, climate change, food justice, hunger, organics, nutrition and the joy of eating and cooking.
All events are free and open to the public, but registration is required. Please note that there is an option to join in person or virtually for every session.
Please email Wes Norton or call 801-5627 for more information.
