MSU aims to fight hunger with $10M federal grant

Michigan State University plans to use a $10 million federal grant to boost developing nations' efforts to fight hunger.

The East Lansing school announced Friday that the money comes from the U.S. Agency for International Development. Michigan State's Food Security Group leads the new Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Security Policy.

The group will work with governments, researchers and private sector players in Africa, Asia and Latin America to increase agricultural productivity and resiliency to climate change. The aim: Improve farmers' incomes, diets and food stability.

Michigan State also leads two other federally funded labs that work to overcome problems affecting global food production.
