Media Watch on Hunger and Poverty - World Food Day

For over a Quarter of a Century, World Food Day (October 16th) has provided a forum on television, for in-depth analysis of the crisis of extreme poverty and hunger throughout the world, even in the US. This particular panel, has representatives from the Agency for International Development's Food For Peace program, the main vehicle the United States uses to distribute food to needy countries. Also represented, is a member of The World Food Council, which has existed for many decades , and has hands-on-the-ground experience in food insecure countries. Scientific organizations, and religious social welfare groups, in Brazil in this case. World Food Day was established to honor the Food and Agricultural Organization, which was established BEFORE the United Nations. I could go on and on, but view this show first. Thanks!!!
