“Over the past decade, organizations have seen their ability to control carefully developed missions and value propositions disintegrate as millions of digitally-engaged consumers share, re-position and re-interpret content,” comments HUNGRY creator Kevin Mark Lodie. “Today, when a message meets the masses, the narrative can be amplified, authenticated or altered. This discussion asks whether content is still king, or if consumer engagement ultimately rules?”

“Nothing tells our story better than when someone tours our kitchen and meets our founder, Sister Alice Marie Quinn,” explains Daryl Twerdahl, Executive Director of St. Vincent Meals on Wheels Foundation. “But reaching new, busy next-generation supporters means we have to tell our story using several platforms that are one step removed from the live experience. ‘Mission Control’ will talk about that process and its challenges.”

HUNGRY is presented by the St. Vincent Meals on Wheels Foundation and made possible by the support of The Gas Company, a Sempra Energy utility, and ABC7. It provides a platform for STVMOW to connect with leaders in the public, private, and government sectors, and, through dialogues that engage diverse points of view, HUNGRY generates insights and shares best practices that advance philanthropic and prosocial endeavors.

Episodes of HUNGRY include:

"Mission Control: What Happens When the Message Meets the Masses" (updated after this release)
"Currency: The Social Impact of Dollars vs. Deeds"
"Mission or Mania: What Drives Pioneers of Change?"
