Description

Review

I believe Feeding the Other to be a crucial and necessary tool for any service organization, not only food banks and pantries, when exploring how to best center and prioritize the voices of people who are most impacted by their services.

Review

Grounded in the perspectives of food pantry clients, de Souza’s exemplary work issues a devastating critique of the neoliberal hunger industrial complex’s racist, stigmatizing charity approach that sustains food injustice. Just as importantly, she illuminates a path forward, brilliantly reenvisioning the thousands of U.S. food pantry staff as social justice communication activists at the front lines of the hunger epidemic.
