On March 15th-16th, the University of Southern Maine will co-host the upcoming Universities Fighting World Hunger (UFWH) Summit in Portland, Maine, which will bring hundreds of students, faculty, and activists together for two days of action-oriented workshops and inspiring presentations from leaders at the frontlines of fighting hunger. UFWH is a coalition of higher education institutions dedicated to educating individuals in all disciplines about the causes of hunger to encourage them to take effective action, both at home and abroad. The 2019 UFWH theme is Fighting Hunger in a World of Plenty: Shifting Power and Taking Action, which will showcase a wide spectrum of food systems issues, such as questions of power, justice, public health, and community well-being. The goal of the UFWH Summit is to inspire university students, faculty, and staff to take meaningful actions that address the root causes of food insecurity and offer systematic solutions to hunger.
