Suggestions For Making A Difference In Fighting Hunger, Food Shortages

Kristi York Wooten, founder of SustenanceGroup.org and an advocate for fighting hunger and poverty, “canvas[sed] a panel of colleagues and experts for thoughts on how corporations and governments (and the rest of us) can make a difference to ensure a sustainable future,” and presents her findings in this post on the Huffington Post’s “Impact” blog.

Wooten, along with officials from CIMMYT (International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center) and the World Food Programme, say empowering women in agriculture, supporting small farmers, holding brands accountable for making changes in the food-supply chain, innovating and educating, providing proper nutrition in food assistance, and urging lawmakers to support food programs are ways to influence change (11/5).
