Summary: 

Feeding a hungry world and what role Saskatchewan has to play in that fight were discussed at a forum hosted by the Saskatchewan Trade and Export Partnership (STEP). (..) The event provided participants an opportunity to hear the needs of the WFP, and how Saskatchewan's innovation in agriculture can be applied. Ramiro Armando de Oliveira Lopes da Silva, assistant executive director of the WFP, said it is not a question food being available. It's a question of "connecting the food with those who need it. Our goal is to provide the right food, at the right time, to the right person," da Silva said.
