BATON ROUGE, La. — If you had the resources to accomplish something great in the world, what would you do? This was the challenge issued by legendary investor Warren Buffet to his sons. Howard Buffet answered this challenge by embarking on a mission to end world hunger. His efforts can be seen in 40 Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World, a traveling exhibit currently on display at Louisiana’s Old State Capitol. Feeding the World, a virtual program discussing local efforts in the hunger problem, is being held in conjunction with this exhibit.
Dr. Carl Motsenbocker with LSU’s College of Agriculture will discuss his work in a virtual program via Zoom. This program will take place at 5:30 PM on Tuesday, June 15. Registration is required and will close at 5:30 PM Monday, June 14. Guests may register by visiting www.louisianaoldstatecapitol.org.
Dr. Motsenbocker is a professor of Horticulture and Sustainable Agriculture and the executive director of the Louisiana Farm to School Program for the LSU School of Plant Environmental and Soil Sciences. His talk will focus on the significance of local farmers to the local food systems. Dr. Motsenbocker will answer questions at the conclusion of the program.
Louisiana’s Old State Capitol is operated under the direction of Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin. The Museum is open Tuesday through Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is free.
