University Community Forum: Stuffed and Starved: How a Generation of People Is Getting Hungrier With More Food Our food distribution system is made up of components that do not rightly or justly address the needs of those who are food insecure. More is not better. By attempting to solve hunger amongst low-income populations, we have created other issues: obesity and malnourishment. The answer is found in the kind of compassion to care enough to show people a better way to live, something that everyone is truly hungry for. University Forum is sponsored by Ecumenical Campus Ministries. This program is held each Wednesday during the Spring and Fall semesters at the ECM Center. The presentations are free and open to the University and Lawrence communities. Every presentation begins at 12:00 noon, and usually includes a brief question and answer period before concluding at 1:00 p.m. We also serve an optional lunch at 11:30am for $6.50 ($3.50 for students) The University-Community forum has been bringing together the KU and Lawrence communities since the 1940s. This program is a series of presentations by faculty, students and community members to educate and facilitate dialogue on ideas and events that shape our society.
