Christopher Meyer, a junior in agronomy and agricultural business, was named the 2022 David Lambert “Hunger Fighter” scholar. The scholarship is awarded to undergraduate students who demonstrate an interest in seed science, global food security, and/or childhood nutrition. The award is administered by Iowa State’s Seed Science Center.
Meyer said his experiences in high school with the Iowa Youth Institute and the World Food Prize led him to his passion for agronomy and fighting world hunger.
Meyer has helped combat food insecurity at Iowa State by creating a free cooking workshop where students can learn recipes to make nutritious meals that are affordable and accessible.
