May 30, 2010 · Print This Article
“Road of Insecurity: The Global Food Crisis” explores the current conditions of those living without food in the world and what is being done to address the problem.
This award-winning radio documentary seeks to educate people on an issue present not only here in the United States but to an extreme degree in the developing world.
The documentary aims to explain why it is important to care about issues overseas and to fund programs that aid the developing world.
The concept for the documentary originated in a social justice course the three students participated in, Working for Global Justice. As part of the course, they interviewed representatives of several national and international organizations involved in developing sustainable policies for food security.
The students interviewed representatives of agencies like Bread for the World, the national organization to end hunger at home and abroad, and Catholic Relief Services, the international humanitarian agency of the American Catholic Church.
The documentary was reported and produced by Gillian Davis, Caitlin Friel, and Mallory Terrence.
