Global Tipping Points:

Making Hunger History

What does the current state of global hunger look like? With a rapidly rising population and global temperatures rising, how will the world support the dietary needs of everyone? Can global food insecurity be reduced or eliminated? Join the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire for this enlightening discussion with Chase Sova of the World Food Program. Thanks to a long career in agricultural policy, Chase has a vast understanding of the factors that lead to food insecurity and the policies, as well as programs, that are effective in reducing global hunger. Chase's presentation will focus on ways in which the U.S. can, and should, act to make hunger history and the benefits that these programs can bring to the entire world.

When: October 3rd at 6:00 pm

Where: Mara Auditorium, SNHU
