(Disclaimer:  These links are food for thought.  They originate from 25 in Change.  We Flannerys like what 25 in Change is doing to fight hunger but we don’t always agree with or favor all of the ideas presented here.  It is healthy to be aware of all these ideas without having to agree wholeheartedly.  If nothing else they are good for the sake of discussion, thought, and the healthy comfort-challenge that comes from different philosophies pursuing the common goals of reducing hunger, improving health, and cultivating efficient systems.  We look forward to covering some of the controversies surrounding the different perspectives and approaches to hunger soon.)
