Hunger Stories: What is Hunger?


Vox Culture is proud to present its latest event, Hunger Stories: What is Hunger? Vox will be breaking new ground with this event, by providing a space for additional and deeper discussion on hunger; an issue, as we know, is not only a international, but a local problem as well.
 
It is our immense pleasure to host the leaders/representatives of four outstanding organizations Houston Food BankUrban HarvestSEARCH Homeless Services and Malawians in Texas Organization who have graciously donated their time to speak about and share their perspectives on the issue of hunger. Speakers participating in Hunger Stories: What is Hunger? include:
  • Brian Greene, President/CEO - Houston Food Bank
  • Scott Howard, President of the Board - Urban Harvest
  • Charity Dominguez, Community Outreach Team Lead - SEARCH Homeless Services
  • Maurina McClean, Chairwoman - Malawians in Texas Organization
The discussion will range from hunger on the international scene, to the local scene, how individuals are affected by the issue, and how certain solutions such as urban gardening can play a role in fighting hunger.
 
The event will also include a Poetry Slam performed by local poets. These poets will share the power of their words and expressions while addressing hunger in the city and around the world.
 
Hunger Stories: What is Hunger? will take place on Saturday, July 27 from 6:00PM to 8:00PM at the Vox Culture Warehouse (8570 Katy Freeway, Suite 116, Houston, TX 77024) [detailed map and directions, we recommend using the Central Memorial Parkway entrance behind Starbucks on I-10W for the most direct access]. Tickets are $10 per person and includes dinner! Children 12 & Under enter free! (Please emailViktor.Kopic@voxculture.org to request for special entrance tickets for kids.)
