Atlanta Journal-Constitution Highlights Global Food Security Act, Georgians Who Pushed For Bill’s Passage

Atlanta Journal-Constitution: New international food initiative got a political push from Georgia
“…The measure, known as the Global Food Security Act, seeks to leverage public and private money to help poor nations learn from U.S. expertise on how to grow and maintain their own, more resilient food supply. The effort was years in the making and brought together disparate political forces, including Republican Party elder U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson; Michelle Nunn, the Democrat who mounted a rough-and-tumble but unsuccessful campaign to join him in the Senate two years ago [and who now heads the humanitarian organization CARE]; and a pair of agricultural labs at the University of Georgia…” (Hallerman, 7/31).
