HungerU Tour Headed to UNL to Ignite Conversation About World Hunger

September 29, 2015

Lincoln, Neb. — Hunger is the number one killer in the world, killing more people than HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. Students at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will have the opportunity to learn more about how they can be a part of the global hunger solution when the HungerU mobile educational exhibit comes to campus Oct. 5-6.

As part of the HungerU Tour, the exhibit visits college campuses to not only spark conversations about how today's farmers are helping feed a hungry world, but also to educate about the critical role that modern agriculture plays every day in putting food on our tables.

"Students, the leaders of tomorrow, will need to work together to produce more food for the planet than all of the generations that have come before them," said HungerU director Margie Alsbrook. "HungerU inspires students to take action to solve global hunger."

The exhibit will be on the East Campus Mall between Agricultural Hall and the Nebraska East Union Oct. 5, and at City Campus at the Nebraska Union Plaza Oct. 6. The exhibit will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
