  • Iowa State students part of global challenge to reduce food insecurity

    Olivia Reicks and Trey Forsyth want to be part of the solution to end world hunger. It's a daunting task considering that it will take a 70 percent increase in food production by 2050 to meet the demands of a growing global population, but that only serves as motivation for the two Iowa State University undergrads.

    Reicks, a junior majoring in supply chain management and business economics, and Forsyth, a sophomore in ag business and agriculture and society, have different ideas on how to achieve food security. They will spend the next semester developing their concepts into a workable solution for the Land O'Lakes Global Food Challenge Emerging Leaders for Food Security fellowship.
