As a part of Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, Wake Forest Campus Kitchen is proud to have a keynote speaker, Amanda Hege, speaking to students and faculty about the issues surrounding food insecurity as well as her work in the field.
Hege believes in the transformative power of food and nutrition to nourish bodies, empower minds, and build communities. She conducted the first study of its kind evaluating food and housing insecurity of students at the University of Kentucky, leading to the Basic Needs Report that informs effective policies and solutions to promote a hunger-free campus community. She established and advised the Campus Kitchen at the University of Kentucky, provided leadership for the inaugural Kentucky Hunger Dialogue, was a leader in launching a new Undergraduate Certificate in Food Systems and Hunger Studies, and is co-planning the 2020 Universities Fighting World Hunger Summit. She has previous experience with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation, Feeding America’s Washington, DC office and Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina.
