Andrew Fisher is author of the book Big Hunger

Hunger is a big problem across America but especially here in the San Joaquin Valley. One of the local groups taking on the issue is FoodLink of Tulare County. The Exeter-based organization is dedicated to bridging the gap between between health and anti-hunger relief efforts. On Friday night the organization is hosting a special event with Andrew Fisher, author of the book Big Hunger: The Unholy Alliance Between Corporate American and Anti-Hunger Groups. Fisher joined us to talk about his critique of the relationship between big business and groups that aim to fight food insecurity, which he says creates a conflict of interest.
