What do you know about global hunger?

Tuesday, February 23, 2016 - 11:00am

U of M Global Food Challenge Emerging Leaders encouraged their fellow students to join the global hunger conversation at an awareness-building event on February 22. Set up on a busy East Bank campus sidewalk, their information table featured an engaging set of maps and materials. Questions such as “how will we feed another 2 billion people in 30 years?” and “what percent of food is thrown away in the U.S.?” encouraged students to think and talk about the future in a new way.

The 2015-16 U of M Emerging Leaders cohort--Elizabeth Alonzi, Katie Enzenauer, and Blake Schweiner--hosted the event, which also provided visibility and recruiting opportunities for the year-long travel, learning, and internship program sponsored by Land O’Lakes.
