Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) July 7, 2009
A new book by William Lambers focuses on school lunch programs in the effort to fight hunger and poverty around the globe. The book, "Ending World Hunger: School Lunches for Kids Around the World", features over 50 interviews with officials from the United Nations World Food Programme, Catholic Relief Services, World Vision, the Barefoot Foundation and ChildsLife International.
Each interview shows the status of these critical child feeding programs and the potential for expanding them to achieve universal school feeding. The interviews also focus on the impact school meals have for children in developing countries as well as how people can help these programs.
School feeding is a critical aspect of legislation recently introduced into Congress. The bill titled H.R. 2817, known as the Roadmap to End Global Hunger, identifies school feeding as critical. The legislation would create the white house position of a global hunger advisor. This new advisor to President Obama would coordinate the most effective U.S. response to global hunger. This is especially critical as the issues of hunger and development are vital to U.S. and international security in countries like Iraq, Afghanistan, Sudan and many others.
The interviews published in the book originally appeared online at Blogcritics magazine. You can access these interviews at http://www.lamberspublications.com/schoolfeeding.html (Lambers Publications).
Printed copies of the book are available at Amazon.com and other bookstores. The interviews were arranged by Lambers in conjunction with the UN World Food Programme office in Washington, D.C.
Lambers is the author of several books including "The Road to Peace," "Nuclear Weapons," and "The Spirit of the Marshall Plan: Taking Action Against World Hunger, School Lunches for Kids Around the World." His articles have been published by the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Chicago Sun-Times, the San Diego Union Tribune and the History News Network.
