Hunger, Nutrition Should Be Central Component Of U.S. Policy

Huffington Post: Hunger Emergencies Cast Shadow Over State of the Union
William Lambers, author and member of the Feeding America Blogger Council

“As President Obama delivers the State of the Union, there are hunger emergencies both at home and abroad. … It’s vital, therefore, that Congress support international aid through Food for Peace as well as other initiatives including the McGovern-Dole global school meals plan. UNICEF also needs funding for its programs that combat infant malnutrition. President Obama also needs a hunger relief coordinator in the White House. … [T]he well-being of any nation depends on nutrition. This is why defeating hunger must always take center stage in both domestic and foreign policy” (1/28).
