USAID Blog Recognizes Partners Leading Fight Against Global Hunger

A post in USAID’s “IMPACTblog” recognizes Howard Buffett, president of the Howard G. Buffet Foundation, and Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, both recipients of the World Food Program USA’s 10th Annual George McGovern Leadership Awards, “for their extraordinary efforts to fight global hunger”; reports on USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah’s attendance at “a panel at the Global Hunger Conference to discuss how leadership and thoughtful partnerships can make a difference in fighting hunger, poverty, and undernutrition”; and provides a video of Josette Sheeran, executive director of the World Food Programme, in which “she addresses how leveraging private sector resources and working together can help advance food security efforts, improve nutrition, and promote a better future for all” (10/25).
