Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger
 

Quote of the Day: Norman Borlaug

"If you desire peace, cultivate justice, but at the same time cultivate the fields to produce more bread; otherwise there will be no peace."

Norman Borlaug, (March 25, 1914 – September 12, 2009), father of the green revolution, in his Nobel Lecture The Green Revolution, Peace, and Humanity
