Food crisis task force

The United Nations is to set up a task force to tackle the global food crisis. The UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, said the rise in food prices around the world had turned into a challenge of global proportions.

The task force, chaired by Mr. Ban, will be made up of the heads of UN agencies and the World Bank. It will explore both emergency and long-term measures to tackle the crisis caused by the recent sharp rise in the price of staple foods such as wheat.

Typical, it had to go to raids in many places around the world before they realize that they have to do something. I bet in the next G8 meeting they will announce programs for the …hungry. In the meantime who knows how many will die from starvation!
