A Response to the U.S. Anti-Hunger Movement’s Mantras: Deserving Objects of Assistance, Daily (Pyrrhic) Victories, and Protracted States of Emergency
Keywords:Food Security, Anti-poverty, SNAP, Policy
Andrew Fisher, a co-founder of the Community Food Security Coalition, masterfully reveals the corporate collusion that dominates much of the anti-hunger movement in the United States, in a no-holds-barred account. In eight chapters he takes the reader on a journey through the depths of agreements that further disempower and stigmatize those on the margins of society. Fisher balances this with the hope that systematic change is already taking place in the form of individuals committed to uncovering the disenfranchising aspects of the anti-hunger industrial complex. He makes clear distinctions between anti-poverty and anti-hunger advocates, noting that their allegiances are split in a neoliberal era of governance in which the state continues to cut funding from assistance programs, allowing corporations such as Walmart to proliferate their own branded approach to battling hunger.
