Join Us for a Twitter Town Hall on Global Hunger
On Tuesday, Nov. 20, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. ET, join Bread for the World and the Millennium Challenge Corporation in a Twitter town hall discussion on hunger issues—specifically, MCC's work on agriculture and food security and Bread for the World Institute's 2013 Hunger Report.
Over the past decade, MCC projects have exemplified smart U.S. government assistance in action, setting global communities on trajectories toward prosperity. MCC’s food security investments highlight the importance of strengthening agricultural and rural economies in poor countries and promoting reliable access to sufficient, safe, and affordable food.
Bread for the World Institute will release its 2013 Hunger Report, Within Reach: Global Development Goals, on Monday, Nov. 19. The report calls for a renewed push to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by the 2015 deadline and urges a focus on ending hunger and extreme poverty in a post-2015 development framework and set of goals.
Join the town hall discussion, using the guidelines below, to talk to fellow activists and experts from Bread for the World, Bread for the World Institute, and Millennium Challenge Corporation about how we are moving toward ending global hunger.
