Come listen to Lori Andersen Spruance, Associate Professor of Public Health in BYU's College of Life Sciences, discuss "Why School Meals are a Feminist Issue" at this fall 2022 Global Women's Studies Colloquium event.

Women living with children have the highest poverty rates in the United States. Food insecurity is one of the challenges faced by women and children living in poverty. School meals help alleviate food insecurity and contribute to a healthy diet. Come learn about the National School Lunch and Breakfast programs, the health and academic outcomes associated with these programs, how they operated and reduced food insecurity during the COVID-19 pandemic, and why all feminists should be advocates for school meals.

You can watch this lecture live in 238 HRCB or via Zoom using meeting code 986 8474 5503 and passcode 856210.
