First Annual Ohio Hunger Dialogue Featuring Keynote Speaker Ambassador Tony Hall
One in six households in Ohio face food insecurity, the 10th worst state in the United States. Worldwide, 1.2 billion people suffer from hunger and malnutrition.
Walsh University’s Office of Global Learning and Office of Service Learning, in conjunction with Ohio Campus Compact, invite university administrators, faculty, and students to join with community partners and the general public in a dialogue to address issues of hunger in our local and global communities. The goal of this dialogue will be to seek solutions to domestic and global hunger through the teaching, research, and service activities of Ohio’s colleges and universities.
Based on the models of dialogues already held in Kansas and North Carolina, Ohio will be the third state to host a state-wide meeting of higher educators devoted to seeking hunger solutions.
A native of Dayton, Ambassador Tony Hall served Ohio for more than 20 years as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, representing Ohio’s 3rd District. He then served as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Missions on Food and Agriculture and is now the Executive Director of the Alliance to End Hunger, a policy and advocacy group based in Washington DC.
