U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Assistant to the Administrator for the Bureau for Food Security and the Deputy Coordinator for Development for Feed the Future Beth Dunford will travel to Minneapolis, Minnesota on September 6-7.

Dunford will join David Beasley, Executive Director of the World Food Programme, and Rick Leach, CEO of the World Food Program USA, at the Economic Club of Minnesota’s Food Security Summit. This event will discuss the state of hunger at home and abroad with executives and employees from many private sector companies based in Minnesota, including Feed the Future partners Cargill, General Mills, and Land O’Lakes.

While in Minneapolis, Dunford will sign a new partnership agreement with Land O’Lakes, Inc. and Land O’Lakes International Development to seek joint collaboration opportunities that focus on scaling innovative technologies to smallholder farmers, including improved animal feed and crop protection, that strengthen agriculture led growth. The partnership agreement will also look for opportunities to continue to collaborate on improving the enabling environment to increase smallholder access to crop protection products and prioritize food security investments.
