Living on the Edge: Poverty, Hunger, and the Role of Advocacy in NJ

This workshop examines hunger and food insecurity as symptoms of poverty and the various causes of this growing problem. Health and economic consequences of hunger will be discussed as well as social and political factors. Several anti-hunger/nutrition programs will be highlighted with emphasis on ways to reach at risk populations, such as older adults and children. Through lecture, video and case studies, workshop participants will gain an in-depth understanding of the issue and the role of social work in eradicating poverty and hunger through outreach, education and advocacy.
