WORLD FOOD DAY WILL FEATURE TELECONFERENCE

Old Dominion will observe World Food Day Tuesday, Oct. 16, by broadcasting the teleconference "World Food System:
Serving All or Serving Some?"

Members of the campus community are invited to attend the free teleconference for as long as they can. It will air from noon to 3 p.m. in room 219 of the Gornto Center.

Originating on the campus of George Washington University, the teleconference will feature Wenche Barth Eide, a world
leader for a rights-based approach to food security, who will discuss the evolving world food system's ability to provide
nourishment and economic opportunity for all.

Eide's talk will be followed by the film "The Global Banquet: Politics of Food" and a call-in question-and-answer session.
