Zero Hunger: Doing What Works

In celebration of its 20th Anniversary, Meds & Food for Kids launched "Zero Hunger: Doing What Works," an annual event on finding solutions to hunger.
The 2023 inaugural keynote was held in June and featured speaker Roger Thurow, Senior Fellow on Global Food and Agriculture with the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. Thurow is a former foreign correspondent with the Wall Street Journal, where he reported on famine and hunger. His books include "The Last Hunger Season: A year in an African Farm Community on the Brink of Change," "Enough: Why the World's Poorest Starve in an Age of Plenty," and "The First 1,000 Days: A Crucial Time for Mothers and Children."
Thurow was joined by Dr. Lora Iannotti of the Brown School at Washington University St. Louis and the E3 Nutrition Lab, and MFK Founder Dr. Pat Wolff for a panel discussion on the future of hunger solutions.
