UN World Food Program's US Against Hunger
October 2021. Virtual
On Thursday, October 14, Empire was proud to produce World Food Program USA’s livestreamed panel discussion entitled US Against Hunger: The Future of Hunger & Global Food Systems. This engaging conversation was moderated by award-winning international journalist Femi Oke and featured Dr. Martin Frick, Deputy to the Special Envoy for the UN Food Systems Summit 2021; Volli Carucci, Director of Food Systems and Resilience, U.N. World Food Programme; and Chef Andrew Zimmern, chef, writer & Emmy-winning TV personality.
The virtual panel focused on the U.N. World Food Programme’s work of fighting food insecurity and addressing how food waste impacts hunger. The discussion was livestreamed through the World Food Program’s social media accounts as well as a Vimeo player on the World Food Program USA’s website.
