A global movement to end hunger swept across the Kansas State campus today as part of World Food Day.

Three public presentations were held at various locations at K-State, including panel discussions and seminars featuring noted scientists and biographer Noel Vietmeyer.

The focus of the discussions was to increase awareness about the food we eat and where it comes from.

"Often that is the divide between the rural and the urban people," Vietmeyer said. "Urban, where I live, people seem to think that food just comes from somewhere behind the back wall of the super market and somehow it's engineered back there."

World Food Day seeks to assist with the struggle against hunter, malnutrition, and poverty by increasing the quality and quantity of food production.
