Read the latest issue of Hunger News and Hope:

HNH Vol 21 No 2, Summer 2021

This is the first of a two-part series about justice issues in farming. In this issue, Sara Alexander shares what she learned, from personal interviews, about the frustrations of Maya farmers in Belize. Dawn Michelle Michals writes about the plight of migrant farm workers in the US and what some groups are doing to bring about lasting change. Michael Williamson takes a deep look into the injustice experienced by Black farmers, particularly in Mississippi.

In “Farm Justice, Part 2,” coming out in early fall, Linda Freeto will examine urban homesteading from the 19th century to the present. I will interview Jonathan Grant, executive director of World Hunger Relief, Inc., whose training farm is located in Lacy Lakeview, TX, about the innovative programs being launched there. The issue will also include an extensive, annotated resource list and an updated hunger glossary.
