Linking Hunger and Global Health

 The Web Site L.A. Observed is reporting that global health is the new hot Hollywood ticket and the guests at a Thursday night discussion with Bill Gates, Michael Milliken, included Share Our Strength supporters: Wendy Gruel, city controller, and Alice Waters! See the article at: http://www.laobserved.com/archive/2011/02/global_health_a_hot_holly.php

Alice Waters was our first donor from the culinary community more than 25 years ago, so it feels like poetic justice that she shares an interest in the global health issues I tried to tackle in The Imaginations of Unreasonable Men. And while I haven’t discussed it with her, I suspect that in her case it has less to do with this being one of the flavors of the month in Hollywood right now, and more to do with a long commitment to solving problems that affect those most vulnerable and voiceless, the same commitment that brought her to Share Our Strength in the first place.
