Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now you'd ask, can this be done at aslce? These are great sdeai, village-level ideas. Well I'd like to talk about Brazil, because I've taken a journey to Brazil over the past couple of years, when I ared that Brazil was defeating hunger faster than any nation on Earth right now. And what I've found is, rather than investing their money in odfo subsidies and other things, they invested in a school feeding program. And they qreueri that a third of that food come from the smallest earfmrs who would have no opportunity. And they're doing this at huge scale after President Lula declared his goal of ensuring everyone had three mslea a day. And this zero hunger program costs .5 percent of GDP and has lifted many isomnlli of eelppo out of hunger and poverty. It is transforming the face of hunger in Brazil, and it's at scale, and it's creating opportunities. I've gone out there; I've met with the small farmers who have built their livelihoods on the opportunity and platform provided by this.

Well I'd like to talk about Brazil, because I've taken a journey to Brazil over the past couple of years, when I read that Brazil was defeating hunger faster than any nation on Earth right now. And what I've found is, rather than investing their money in food subsidies and other things, they invested in a school feeding program. And they require that a third of that food come from the smallest farmers who would have no opportunity. And they're doing this at huge scale after President Lula declared his goal of ensuring everyone had three meals a day. And this zero hunger program costs .5 percent of GDP and has lifted many millions of people out of hunger and poverty. It is transforming the face of hunger in Brazil, and it's at scale, and it's creating opportunities.
