On November 9, the Food & Environment Reporting Network (FERN) in partnership with CUESA will present The Empty Plate: Fighting Hunger in the Age of Trump. The Empty Plate will discuss the state of food insecurity under the current administration and what individuals, activists, and communities are doing to address it. Expert panelists will share stories from the field in urban and rural California and will explore the potential impact of the Trump administration’s proposed SNAP cuts, watered-down school lunch standards, and anti-immigrant policies on community food security. The panelists will offer opportunities to be engaged in solutions alongside anti-hunger organizations, school districts, farmworker advocates, and local communities.
