The World Food Prize is all about feeding the world, especially the hungriest of the hungry in developing nations. One organization taking part in the 2012 World Food Prize last week was Heifer International, which has been helping hungry and disadvantaged people around the globe feed themselves for over 70 years.
In this week’s ZimmCast, we hear from Heifer International president and CEO Pierre Ferrari, about how this organization started from the concept that people who are hungry can be helped more if you give them a cow rather than just milk. One of the great things about Heifer International is that there are so many ways to get involved and do something to help, from donating $10 or $20 to buy a goat or a flock of chickens for a family, to being a major corporate sponsor like Elanco, which also sponsored our coverage of the 2012 World Food Prize.
