Ohio State Takes On Food Security
"The problem is persistent. And it’s everywhere. Even though its impossibly large numbers are void of meaning for many: Fifty million Americans don’t know where their next meal is coming from. In Ohio, 2 million people are hungry. And 21 percent of children here in Franklin County are food insecure. It’s a wall of hard truth, but there are windows. Over the next decade, Ohio State will invest nearly $125 million in food security, combatting this critical challenge from all disciplinary fronts as an integral element of President Michael V. Drake’s 2020 Vision for the university.
The goal is big because the shroud of hunger is worn in every community, especially by the most vulnerable. The goal is big because Ohio State, with its capacity to confront complex global challenges, can elevate the quality of life through a unique marketplace of ideas. As a large, influential land-grant university, it’s our mission."
