Feed the Future event coming to campus

March 26, 2014

CSU is one of five universities across the country that will serve as host for the Campus Food Security Tour.

Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Collaborative Research is partnering with the Peace Corps and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) as part of the Feed the Future Campus Food Security Tour. CSU is helping share information about how students can become engaged with efforts to fight global hunger and poverty.

The event is set for 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 2 in the Lory Student Center’s North Ballroom. It will include a presentation and open forum discussions with leaders in international development and agriculture, including representatives from CSU’s Climate Change Livestock Innovation Lab and the Peace Corps Food Security Team.

Pizza reception

Following the event, the Peace Corps will host a pizza reception with campus groups and local non-profit organizations that are working toward a more sustainable future.

Feed the Future is the U.S. government’s global hunger and food security initiative. Led by USAID, it leverages the strengths and resources of 10 federal departments and agencies. Peace Corps plays a unique role in Feed the Future by taking important food security messaging and practices to the grassroots level.

CSU’s Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Collaborative Research focuses on adapting livestock systems to climate change.

The event is geared toward students but is free and open to the public.
