2012 Dialogue Overview
October 10-11, 2012, NC Campus Compact partnered with Stop Hunger Now and the Center for Leadership, Ethics and Public Service at NC State to sponsor the first annual NC Campuses Against Hunger: A Call to Action to End Hunger In Our Lifetime. Representatives from 18 campuses and community partners convened at Elon University to explore hunger-related issues and disuss ideas and initiatives to fight food insecurity. Campus teams also developed strategies for an institution-wide strategy to addressing hunger.
Highlights of the event included workshops discussing systemic issues that need to be addressed, a meal packaging event during which attendees packaged over 10, 000 meals, a performance and presentation by David LaMotte, keynotes by global food insecurity experts, David Lambert of Lambert Associates and Dr. June Henton of Auburn University and Ray Buchanan, founder and international president of Stop Hunger Now, working sessions bringing together like institutions and like constituents (i.e. students, faculty, staff and community partners) and poster sessions featuring best practices of North Carolina campuses to address hunger.
