The Edward A. Puff Sr. and Edith Kottmyer Puff Memorial Lecture in the Study of Christianity.
With more than 40 million Americans experiencing hunger and poverty, we are a nation in crisis. How can our country stand idly by while our neighbors go hungry? Jeremy Everett will discuss evidence-informed ways we can all participate in ending hunger and poverty together, from the grassroots level all the way to the halls of power in Washington, D.C.
Everett is the founder and executive director of the Baylor Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty, and the author of I Was Hungry: Cultivating Common Ground to End an American Crisis. In 2014, he was appointed by the US Congress to serve on the National Commission on Hunger.
