An Ounce of Prevention

Erin Hammond

Polk City, IA

After spending two weeks volunteering at a rural Haitian medical clinic, Erin Hammond noticed a lack of agricultural education in the region, resulting in devastating soil erosion and crop loss. The experience inspired Erin to write a research paper on food security in Haiti for the World Food Prize and fueled her interest in hunger. She hopes to someday start her own nonprofit organization that implements agricultural education programs for farmers in developing countries.
