Food riots around the world. Rationing of rice in the United States. But at the same time, farmers are paid to not grow crops. And some crops are diverted for use in creating bio-fuel.
Billions of dollars that could be spent on feeding the world's hungry are instead being spent on an unpopular war in Iraq.
What can be done?
That question will be explored on News Talk Online on Paltalk Monday April 28.
Joining us to help understand the food crisis will be Frances Moore Lappe, author of 16 books beginning with the 1971 3 million-copy bestseller, Diet for a Small Planet, which awakened a whole generation to the human-made causes of hunger and the significance of our everyday choices.
