Buffett and Gates

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will present WFP USA's George McGovern Leadership Award to Mr. Buffett and Mr. Gates in recognition of their leadership in establishing the World Food Program's Purchase for Progress initiative which helps transition small-scale farmers from extreme poverty and chronic hunger into active participants in agricultural markets.

U.S. Department of State


October 24, 2011
4:00  -  6:30 p.m.


U.S. Department of State
2201 C Street NW

Pre-set time for video cameras: 11:30 a.m. -  12:30 p.m. from the 23rd Street entrance lobby. Final access time for journalists and still photographers: 3:15 p.m. from the 23rd Street entrance lobby.

Media representatives may attend this briefing upon presentation of one of the following: (1) a U.S. Government-issued identification card (Department of State, White House, Congress, Department of Defense, or Foreign Press Center), (2) a media-issued photo identification card, or (3) a letter from their employer on letterhead verifying their employment as a journalist accompanied by an official photo identification (driver's license or passport).


All sectors have united around an unprecedented initiative that is making significant headway in eradicating global hunger. With U.S. leadership  like that provided by Buffett, Gates, and Shah  guiding the way, the global community has united around a plan to transform the lives of millions of the world�s small-scale farmers, who comprise about one-half of those who suffer from hunger. Governments and humanitarian organizations are not alone in this endeavor, with major corporations like Cargill joining the effort because they understand that as work is done to reduce hunger and poverty, the global economy will grow and thrive.

World Food Program USA (WFP USA) is a nonprofit organization that builds support in the United States to end global hunger. WFP USA engages individuals and organizations, shapes public policy, and generates resources for the United Nations World Food Program and other hunger relief operations.
