During Keith’s tofu spread demonstration he will talk about the principles, history and Food Not Bombs participation in the global transformation away from corporate domination. Hunger and poverty are intentional features of capitalism and will increase as corporate power increases. Over 25,000 people die every day because of hunger often as tons of food pass them on the way to better prices. 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.
