New Podcast Series "The Discerning Elephant" Episode 1 Addresses Food Insecurity in the United States
San Francisco, CA - The first episode features an interview with Bob Hunter, the founder of the Oxford Pierpont Foundation, who discusses the issue of food insecurity and hunger in the United States.

Bob defines food insecurity as a lack of access to nutritious and affordable food, which often affects children and can have negative impacts on their health and academic performance. He notes that measuring food insecurity is complex and that the number of people experiencing hunger has risen due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bob argues that hunger and food insecurity in the US is a result of the dark side of capitalism and that a system is needed to efficiently distribute surplus food to those in need. He suggests solutions such as a portion of taxes going towards helping those who are hungry, and businesses and organizations dedicating a certain percentage of their products to those in need, to create a system.

The Discerning Elephant podcast series aims to educate listeners on the issue of food insecurity and hunger and to inspire them to take action to help those in need. The first episode is now available on all major platforms, including Youtube, Facebook, Instagram & Tiktok.
