Leadership and Food for the Summer

This video is called leadership and Food for the Summer because it is hoped it will be used to illustrate to other communities the approach of a joint effort to address wicked problems like hunger.  So while it celebrates our success, it is really to provide an example to others throughout the state and country that it is possible to bring everyone to the table, our kids and our communities leaders, public, private and non-profit, to solve a problem. -- Maureen Berner, Ph.D, Professor School of Government, UNC
