Closing the Gap on Food Insecurity: The Hunger Industrial Complex (Part 3)

What is the hunger industrial complex, and who is pulling the strings in our nation’s food system? In the latest installment of our Closing the Gap series, Reset brings on a food security expert who says the problem is much bigger than we think — and that “more food” is not the answer to ending hunger in the U.S. 

Also, a farmer joins the show to share why agriculture is the “revolutionary” solution to historic injustice for Black people.

GUESTS: Andy Fisher, executive director of EcoFarm; author of Big Hunger: The Unholy Alliance Between Corporate America and Anti-Hunger Groups

Kamal Bell, CEO of Sankofa Farms
