The 2023 Global Youth Institute in October hosted by the World Food Prize Foundation marked a pivotal milestone, gathering an unprecedented 1,300+ policymakers, industry leaders, scientists, educators, and farmers from 83 countries to address pressing global food security challenges. This year’s theme, Harnessing Change, drew eager minds from diverse backgrounds to showcase current solutions on the ground and renew commitments to ending hunger for all. From the Minnesota Youth Institute, six high school delegates attended to share their research and connect with 150+ peers from around the world. Huge applause to Nicholas Anderson (Irondale), Raja Chinnakotla (Edina), Molly O'Neil (Minnetonka), Jacob Savela (Sebeka), Ezra Vrieze (Mayo), and Aafia Farhan (Minnetonka) for representing our state and CFANS!
