Congressman Jim McGovern told the audience gathered this past March 29 at the
Leicester campus of Becker College for his lecture, “The Global Hunger Crisis:
Roadmap to a Solution,” which was part of the Franklin M. Loew Lecture Series.
A member of the Congressional Hunger Caucus, Congressman McGovern said that,
in his travels to Africa and South America, "no one has ever asked me for an

Joining Congressman McGovern in this interview is Jean McMurray, executive director
