Hunger has always existed, but today it is less a matter of quantity of food, but rather quality of food. Past and present efforts to combat food insecurity and measurements of food insecurity, income and poverty have fallen short with still 14 million US households food insecure. The implications of food insecurity disrupt both the health and livelihood of these households. There is an explicit need to reexamine the structures that allow food insecurity to persist and how a shift towards nutrition security, food justice, and food sovereignty may be justified.

Ana is a first year PhD student in the Systems Thinking for Obesity Prevention (STOP) lab in the Food Science and Human Nutrition Department at Colorado State University. She received her MS in Nutrition at CSU in 2018 and is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. Her master’s thesis investigated use of community-based participatory research among youth to promote food access in a low-income neighborhood. Her current research focuses on food insecurity, primarily among households above poverty in high cost-of-living regions. As a dietitian, Ana works with clients to promote a positive relationship with food and use it as fuel for daily activities and chronic disease prevention.

This speaker series is in coordination with Aims Read! 

 

The Council for Equity and Inclusion (CEI) and the Faculty Teaching and Learning Center (FTLC) are excited to announce that "A Square Meal," by Jane Ziegelman and Andrew Coe, will be our 2021-22 Aims Read!

This book, chosen by a committee of dedicated faculty, staff, students and administrators from across the College, explores how decisions made during the Great Depression impacted foodways in the United States in ways that reverberate to this very day. This fascinating book will foster discussions surrounding a wide variety of timely and relevant topics, including food scarcity, inequities in and politics surrounding aid programs, gender dynamics during economic crises, and the myriad ways in which our identities and our relationships with food are intertwined.
