About this Event
In our city, children and families in some neighborhoods enjoy every imaginable opportunity, while kids in others face obstacles at every turn. As the gaps between us grow, what is our responsibility to each other?
In this time of reflection and conversation, Jeremy Everett of the Texas Hunger Initiative will invite us to ask an age-old question: Who is my neighbor? Then he’ll invite us to see and encounter our neighbors and learn to bring more wholeness to our city.
**Lunch will be provided!** Come ready to listen, learn, and problem-solve together.
Signed copies of Jeremy’s new book, I Was Hungry, will be available for purchase.

About Jeremy Everett:
Jeremy is the author of I Was Hungry: Cultivating Common Ground to End an American Crisis. He is the founder and executive director of the Texas Hunger Initiative (THI), a capacity-building, anti-hunger project within Baylor University. THI partners with federal and state agencies and faith- and community-based organizations to develop and implement strategies to alleviate hunger through research, policy analysis, education, and community organizing.
Jeremy’s deep background in community work is in part a San Antonio story. For several years, he lived and worked on the city’s West Side, and he ran a coffee house that doubled as a community development center, providing jobs and educational opportunities to local youth.
A graduate of Samford University and Baylor University, Jeremy is also a Next Generation Fellow of the University of Texas LBJ School’s Strauss Center for International Security and Law, a Senior Fellow with World Hunger Relief, Inc. He was appointed by U.S. Congress to serve on the National Commission on Hunger.
