Hunger Relief Forum

The U.S. Department of Agriculture issued its Food Security in the United States report for 2012 and it revealed almost 15 percent of U.S. households are what it calls food insecure.

Food insecure means at some point during the year, members of those households did not have consistent access to adequate food for active healthy living.

The Mosaic Company recently hosted a hunger relief forum at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa. In full disclosure, Mosaic is a business sponsor of WUSF Public Media.

The forum featured John Stanmayer, a photographer with National Geographic, who has traveled the world to document what he calls the global food crisis.

The local panel of food experts took a look at hunger problems closer to home in a discussion moderated by WFLA News Channel 8 anchor Keith Cate.
