George McGovern, former head of Food for Peace:
`We Can't Put Hunger on Hold'

The U.S. Ambassador to the FAO from 1998-2001 and agricultural policy leader among Democrats since JFK, Sen. George McGovern, told the LaRouche Political Action Committee (LPAC) today, when informed about the Call by Mrs. Zepp-LaRouche, that he would support all efforts to increase world food production around the FAO meeting. "We can't put hunger on hold," he said. "We have to look forward both to a larger world population, and to feeding them better."

McGovern was head of Food for Peace, the policy organization of President John F. Kennedy, and he said, "JFK developed a blueprint. We kept India alive, for example, until through the Green Revolution, it became self-sufficient in food. {That}has to be our food politics, worldwide."
