VIDEO -- Alice Waters on Ending Childhood Hunger through the Public Schools

This clip is the first of PhilanthroMedia's four featured speakers from a Thursday evening event at Cooper Union, hosted by World Hunger Year (WHY) called Step up to the Plate: Ending the Food Crisis. Alice Waters, an Author, Chef and locavore, spoke about a real life solution to childhood hunger.

Her suggestion: build a system into our public schools that provides for a free breakfast, lunch and early dinner for every child in the system. Waters also advocated for a responsible food system to help us rethink our relationship to food in this country.

Join WHY and their partners in a Call to Action to adopt comprehensive food system reforms.
