Former presidential candidates Bob Dole and George McGovern are being honored this week for their efforts to curb world hunger. Dole, a Kansas Republican, and McGovern, a South Dakota Democrat, both saw their presidential ambitions squashed in landslide elections.

But the two former senators are winners of this year's World Food Prize. The president of the World Food Prize Foundation says the two represent the kind of bipartisan message about hunger that the prize's founder wanted to promote.
