This week, Bill Gates released his annual letter that made the argument that we must keep investing in agriculture research to continue to help extremely poor people build self-sufficiency. The new FAO chief, José Graziano da Silva,  was part of a program in Brazil called "Zero Hunger," which helped lift 24 million Brazilians out of hunger. With both of these influential leaders dedicated to helping end hunger, is this the year that we will come closer to ending hunger and poverty by working together?

What do the rest of us do if we aren't Gates or da Silva? There are still things we can do every day to make a difference. Check out this past post we've done on how we can all make a difference every day in helping to end hunger.
