Food writer and activist Jack Monroe on poverty, hunger, feminism, being a mother with a toddler, and the weight children bear on their “little teeny-tiny shoulders” of reckless financial decision making, political cleaning up of which justifies Austerity.  Cutting ribbons on food banks as a disgrace. Inequality. Wanting change.  Worth your time watching.

Spend eight minutes listening to Jack Monroe talk about food politics. For her this means many things– economic policy, inequality, class assumptions, gender, zero-hour contracts, the austerity downfall of social services.  And the politics of kale and “peasant food” and being able to feel proud of what can be cobbled together on very little.

Her voice quivers as she speaks her truth. She is powerful and righteous and speaks from personal experience.

You all know her blog, yes?  I look forward to many years of learning from her as an important public figure.
