Millions of people in the United States and around the world don’t know where their next meal will come from. The Ohio State University is part of a collective of land-grant and public universities joining with private industry, governmental agencies, and nonprofit groups to address hunger and work towards solving the problem. The Challenge of Change Commission recently released a report on their findings and suggested actions.
According to Cathann A. Kress, vice president of agricultural administration and dean of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences, “The Discovery Themes initiative provides Ohio State with an opportunity to find durable solutions to our most compelling issues, like food insecurity. Having an interdisciplinary approach to addressing global issues positions Ohio State to tackle grand challenges.”
