The World Food Prize Foundation is sponsoring the Iowa Hunger Summit on October 13thin recognition of World Food Day. For one day, they have asked Iowans to eat a meal of only 400 calories (the equivalent of 2-16oz bottles of Coca-Cola). On that day more than 400 Iowans will gather to focus attention on efforts to combat hunger in Iowa and around the world. Participants will explore the plight of millions of people around the world who subsist on 400 calories a day.
“The idea behind those meals is to give normal Iowans sort of a feel for what it might be like to be dependent on various forms of food aid,” foundation spokesman Justin Cremer said. “We hope it gets them thinking about what their life would be like if this was what they were dependent on for their daily meals.”
