World Hunger Curriculum Launched

October 16, 2000

With World Food Day just a few days away on October 16, a coalition of international and national organizations, including the World Bank, on Thursday launched a new curriculum: Feeding Minds, Fighting Hunger.

The curriculum we are releasing today is the first in a series to introduce children all over the world to the problem of hunger and what needs to be done, said Klaus von Grebmer, director of the communications division of the International Food Policy Research Institute. “The world is a global village. If some houses in that village are hungry, it is a problem for the village as a whole.”
