Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: Sen. George McGovern


The earth has enough knowledge and resources to eradicate this ancient scourge. Hunger has plagued the world for thousands of years. But ending it is a greater moral imperative now than ever before, because for the first time humanity has the instruments at hand to defeat this cruel enemy at a very reasonable cost.

—Sen. George McGovern, from The Third Freedom: Ending Hunger in Our Time
