Nominations now open for the 2022 World Food Prize!

The World Food Prize Foundation is currently accepting nominations for the internationally renowned World Food Prize that recognizes the accomplishments of individuals who have worked to improve the quality, quantity or availability of food in the world for all.

“The World Food Prize Foundation annually seeks to elevate the work of leaders in agriculture and food systems working to feed the world in a sustainable and nutritious manner,” said Barbara Stinson, president of the World Food Prize Foundation. “We must honor accomplishments and progress, and inspire further action.”

Nominations of worthy candidates are invited from public and private organizations, academic institutions, governmental organizations and businesses. Nomination criteria, the selection procedure and other information can be found at www.worldfoodprize.org/nominate. Nominations will be accepted through May 1, 2021, for the 2022 Prize.

In 2020, the World Food Prize was awarded to Dr. Rattan Lal of India and the United States. Lal is a proponent of innovative soil-saving techniques that have benefited the livelihoods of more than 500 million smallholder farmers, improved the food and nutritional security of more than two billion people and saved hundreds of millions of hectares of natural tropical ecosystems. “My feelings have been awestruck, professional pride, personal joy, a sense of accomplishment, the desire to do something more, and a sense of responsibility towards those who are deprived of their most basic human right, food,” said Lal about receiving the Prize.
