Author William Lambers will be signing copies of his book "The Spirit of the Marshall Plan: Taking Action Against World Hunger: School Lunches for Kids Around the World" at Borders Bookstore on 9459 Colerain Avenue on Saturday, March 22 from 1-3:30.
The book discusses building a global school lunch program to fight child hunger in countries like Afghanistan, Sudan, and Kenya. The work of charities like ChildsLife International (http://www.childslife.org), which runs the Stara School in the Kenyan slum of Kibera, are highlighted.
The McGovern-Dole Food for Education program, which funds school feeding programs in developing countries, is featured. The McGovern-Dole program is currently before Congress as part of the Farm Bill. Supporters of McGovern-Dole are urging the Congress to expand the program in the final version of the Farm Bill.
