On Tuesday, April 2, Nicole Young '00, spoke at the Community Breakfast, a collaboration between the Office of Community & Government Relations and the Schemel Forum. The topic of Young's talk was "Our Daily Bread: Child Hunger Here and Around the World." Young is a 13-time News and Documentary Emmy Award winner for her work on "60 Minutes."

Young first became interested in the topic of world hunger when she was just 13 years old. It was then that she vowed to do something about it. She showed footage of some of the segments she produced for "60 Minutes." She warned the crowd that it would be difficult to watch, but that they should not look away. These segments included footage of child hunger not just around the world, but in our country as well. 

Coverage of the talk can be found on The Times-Tribune and WBRE.
