Events and Awards
On Oct. 9th, 2020, WFP received its highest honor to date: the Nobel Peace Prize.
WFP USA’s events and lectures cover the day’s most pressing issues in the fight against hunger and facilitate discussions to advance big ideas and improve food security.
Here’s what’s coming up next:
Presented in partnership with World Oregon and The World Affairs Councils of America
3pm ET – 4pm ET
For more than 50 years, the United States has led the world in support for international food security programs. The U.S. was instrumental in creating the United Nations World Food Programme—2020 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and the largest hunger-relief humanitarian organization—in the 1960s and today is its largest government donor. We’ll explore the U.S. legacy of food aid and anti-hunger advocacy, why it matters, and the dynamic role that American agriculture, particularly Oregon’s wheat industry, plays in helping to combat both domestic and global hunger. Join Barron Segar, President and CEO of World Food Program USA; Amanda Hoey, CEO of the Oregon Wheat Growers Commission/Oregon Wheat Growers League; Jeremy Everett, founder and executive director of the Baylor Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty for a rich and engaging discussion about global and domestic food insecurity and Oregon’s contributions to aid, hunger-relief, and the global food supply.
Join us for "The Future of Hunger and Global Food Systems," a discussion about how food waste and food loss contribute to global hunger and how we can build food systems that distribute food equally, including to the world’s hungriest people. Registration coming soon.
