At the Global Food Summit in D.C. today, NBC's Andrea Mitchell interviewed U2 frontman Bono about efforts to curb hunger in Africa.
"Hunger is a ridiculous thing. And we know what to do in order to fix it. There's, you know, these whole new approaches to agriculture to increase productivity, etc. But what's key about today's announcement is that the president of the United States is supporting African ideas on how to fix their problem. There are country-owned, country-devised plans in 30 African countries. And that's what it will take to get to that 50 million people taken out of -- out of hunger over the next decade."
