Apr 24, 2001, 01:00 ET from Land O'Lakes

    ARDEN HILLS, Minn., April 24 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ --
 George McGovern, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nation's food programs, will
 outline his program for ending world hunger as part of a presentation and book
 signing scheduled for:
 
     Time:      3:30-5:00 p.m.
     Date:      Monday, May 7, 2001
     Place:     Earle Brown Heritage Center-Garden City Ballroom
                6155 Earle Brown Drive, Minneapolis
 
     Former Congressman and U.S. Senator McGovern, who represented South Dakota
 at the nation's Capitol for more than 20 years and was a 1972 Presidential
 candidate, has been recognized internationally for taking personal ownership
 and initiative in relation to hunger issues.  He has been active in the fight
 against hunger for more than 40 years.  In 1959, he successfully led "Food for
 Peace" legislation through Congress (and was later chosen by President Kennedy
 to head the program).  Most recently, he was instrumental in the development
 of the McGovern/Dole Global Food for Education Initiative, to be introduced in
 Congress May 3, 2001.
     McGovern's program to end world hunger is detailed in his well-received
 book, "The Third Freedom: Ending Hunger in Our Time."  His recommendations
 cover a wide range of economic, social and agricultural issues, such as the:
 expansion of the U.S. Food Stamp program; establishment of a global school
 lunch program; support for scientific agriculture; and the creation of an
 international Farmers Corps (similar to the Peace Corps).
     The public is invited to the presentation and book signing.  Refreshments
 will be served and copies of "The Third Freedom" will be available on-site.
