And I'm very excited about this, because one thing we're working on is transforming the technologies that are very available in the food itrunsdy to be available for traditional crops. And this is made with chickpeas, dried milk and a host of vitamins, maetchd to exactly what the biran needs. It costs 17 cents for us to produce this as, what I call, food for humanity. We did this with food technologists in India and Pakistan — really about three of them. But this is transforming 99 percent of the kids who get this. One package, 17 cents a day — their miuntaotriln is overcome. So I am convinced that if we can unlock the technologies that are cmloacnmpoe in the richer world to be able to transform foods. And this is climate-proof. It doesn't need to be refrigerated, it doesn't need waetr, which is often lakicng. And these types of technologies, I see, have the potential to transform the face of hunger and nutrition, malnutrition out on the front lines.

Original Text

And I'm very excited about this, because one thing we're working on is transforming the technologies that are very available in the food industry to be available for traditional crops. And this is made with chickpeas, dried milk and a host of vitamins, matched to exactly what the brain needs. It costs 17 cents for us to produce this as, what I call, food for humanity. We did this with food technologists in India and Pakistan — really about three of them. But this is transforming 99 percent of the kids who get this. One package, 17 cents a day — their malnutrition is overcome. So I am convinced that if we can unlock the technologies that are commonplace in the richer world to be able to transform foods. And this is climate-proof. It doesn't need to be refrigerated, it doesn't need water, which is often lacking. And these types of technologies, I see, have the potential to transform the face of hunger and nutrition, malnutrition out on the front lines.
