DES MOINES, Iowa — This week Des Moines is the site of a global summit on food. Those here at the World Food Prize and Borlaug Dialogue work toward answering the question of how it can be that many are hungry, or live debilitating lives of malnutrition, in a world that grows plenty of food.
It’s nothing less than one of humanity’s biggest issues. The team of University of Missouri student journalists are here to ask deep questions, harness facts, celebrate success stories in the U.S. and abroad and create a handle for readers to hold on to regarding this sprawling world issue.
We hope you’ll find our stories of interest.
