Seeking solutions to world hunger



Seeking solutions to world hunger



Journal of the American Dietetic Association 94: 9-20



Some of the entries for a competition aimed at providing solutions to alleviate hunger in a developing country are discussed. Essays were submitted in response to an award offered by the Wimpfheimer-Guggenheim Fund for International Exchange in Nutrition, Dietetics and Management. Common themes were the recognition that the struggle against world hunger must include cooperation among disciplines, that dietetics professionals must use their expertise in food and nutrition to play a key role in ensuring food access for all, and that malnutrition is a complex, multifactorial problem. The winning essay described an aquaculture project in Tanzania. Other essays discussed ways of improving infant nutrition in India, the application of successful U.S. programs overseas, and microenterprise programs that empower the poor.
