The president of the World Food Prize Foundation will speak about global hunger issues at the UI on next week.

Kenneth Quinn will deliver a free lecture at noon on Nov. 9 in 22 Schaeffer Hall.

Quinn served as a U.S. ambassador to Cambodia, and he was named president of the World Food Prize in January 2000.

He oversees the World Food Prize’s annual $250,000 award, called “the Nobel Prize for Food and Agriculture.” Quinn also worked as President Gerald Ford’s Vietnamese interpreter during “high-level meetings at the White House,” according to a release.
