“Today Mediaplanet announces the launch of this June’s edition of “Tackling Hunger.” This campaign will educate readers on the intricacies of hunger both domestic and international. This initiative features a broad range of issues from senior hunger to sustainable farming practices to provide a comprehensive look at this important problem.

This campaign was made possible with the support of Feeding America, Mario Batali, World Food Program USA, UNICEF USA, CropLife America, Islamic Relief USA, the Root Cause Coalition, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Pampered Chef, Wells of Life, Generosity Water, the AARP Foundation, Children’s Hunger Fund, Lifewater International, the International Food Policy Research Institute, Grameen Foundation, The International Association of Students in Agricultural and Related Sciences, Center for Strategic and International Studies, and Hunger Task Force. ”
