Tony P. Hall
Executive director, Alliance to End Hunger

We always have 30 to 40 [food] crises every year. We’ve had that for the past 20 to 30 years. And we’ve really learned how to address famines and crises. And a lot of our money has gone into that. As a result of that, we haven’t put a lot of money into poverty assistance — those moneys have been cut. We haven’t put a lot of money, until recently, into agriculture research and to seeds and technology, et cetera. Hopefully, that’s going to change.
