Hunger Isn’t Sexy | Elizabeth Wight | TEDxModesto

Because hunger doesn’t always look the way we expect it to in America, it can be easy to dismiss it as a problem that doesn’t really apply to us, but fighting food insecurity ethically on a local level impacts lives in unexpected ways. Elizabeth (Greenlee) Wight is CEO of Interfaith Ministries in Modesto, and the creator of IFM’s Feed Modesto programs, including the Free Mobile Farmers Market. Elizabeth is a native Modestan. She studied business at WGU, but considers herself to be educated by travel, voracious reading, working all manner of odd jobs, and by enduring and overcoming deep emotional and physical pain on her way to finding her calling.  She is the mother of two luminous children, Christian and Fiona, and married to digital marketing guru, Chris Wight. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
