WFP USA established the Samuel R. Berger Lecture Series in 2016 as a tribute to Sandy’s work as chairman of WFP USA’s board and his commitment to preserving the American legacy of leadership in fighting global hunger.

WFP USA convened the inaugural Samuel R. Berger Lecture at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington DC, which featured Secretary Madeleine Albright in a conversation with WFP USA President & CEO Rick Leach about the growing humanitarian crises and link to food insecurity. In 2017, Stephen Hadley, former National Security Advisor was the esteemed Lecture speaker and reaffirmed Sandy’s belief that investing in global food security is among the most effective tools we have in our foreign policy toolkit to protect American interests and ensure global stability.
