Auburn University will host representatives from more than 20 colleges and universities in the United States and Canada at its fifth annual University Hunger Summit.
The event is Feb. 26-28 at the Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center.
The theme of the 2010 conference, "Mobilizing to Feed a Hungry World," reflects an ongoing and expanding initiative known as the "War on Hunger" that began more than five years ago at Auburn in partnership with the United Nations World Food Programme.
Headlining the summit will be former Wall Street Journal reporter Roger Thurow, co-author of "Enough: Why the World's Poorest Starve in an Age of Plenty." There will be numerous other speakers and many exhibits.
Never miss a local story.
The cost of the conference is $100 which includes all meals from Friday evening through Sunday noon.
