Activist/Author Raj Patel Investigates the World Food Crisis
British-born Raj Patel has lived and worked in Zimbabwe, South Africa and the United States, so it's safe to say he has a pretty comprehensive world-view. Called "the rock star of social justice," this activist is best known for his 2008 book Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World Food System. See him live at the Cubberly Community Center, where he'll delve into the complex reasons why half the world is malnourished while the other half suffers from overabundance and obesity. He'll have you looking at the food on your plate in a whole new way.
