David Beckmann, the 2010 World Food Prize Laureate, is with us today to discuss Exodus from Hunger: We Are Called to Change the Politics of Hunger. In his powerful and hopeful book, Beckmann looks at the causes of hunger, presents case studies of countries that have made great strides against it, and puts a human face on the problem by sharing stories of people who are, quite simply, hungry every day. The problems can seem overwhelming but Beckmann lays out a clear and workable plan for effectively using political channels to make great progress. He not only challenges us to get involved, he shows us how.
David Beckmann is president of Bread for the World, a collective Christian voice urging our nation’s leaders to end hunger in our country and around the world. He is a Lutheran pastor and an economist. The 2010 World Food Prize recognizes his leadership in achieving changes that have helped hundreds of millions of hungry people.
