The Interdisciplinary Center for Food Security’s chief goal is to better understand and address the causes and consequences of hunger in the United States, with a special focus on Missouri. The center accomplishes this through teaching, research, and outreach involving students, staff, faculty, and community partners from a wide range of backgrounds and fields.

We currently have a variety of projects underway, including two webinar series. A monthly series, Understanding and Addressing Inequalities in the Food System, concludes on November 19. We also just recently concluded a series titled A Conversation about Burnout: Checking In, Not Checking Out for food pantry and food bank staff and volunteers. Recordings and additional materials for each series can be found on their respective homepages.
