UA to host meeting on hunger concerns
The University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, will host students from 76 American Indian tribes nationwide as part of the law school’s Native Youth in Food and Agriculture Leadership Summit, a 10day event now in its fourth year, according to a news release.
Starting July 16, students will learn about the food and health issues pertinent to American Indian people. Wal-Mart and groups such as the Indian Land Tenure Foundation and the Future Farmers of America are sending representatives. Topics also include business and food preservation.
This includes a visit to the “This Is Hunger” display near downtown Fayetteville.
“The exhibit will help students understand how the food insecurity issues they confront in Native communities fit in the greater struggle for national and international food security,” according to a news release.
