An official with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) will speak about global food security April 19 at Carleton Auditorium on the University of Florida campus.

Gregory C. Gottlieb, senior deputy assistant administrator in USAID’s bureau for food security, will present a speech titled “Global Food Security: Where we are and where we’re going.”

Gottlieb will highlight President Obama’s global hunger and food security initiative, Feed the Future, a $3.5 billion investment meant to address the root causes of hunger and malnutrition that limits the potential of hundreds of millions of people.
