EL CENTRO â€“Â Chew on This.
The Chew on This Tour is a unique, interactive road show traveling the nation to heighten awareness about one of the biggest problems facing our world today: hunger.
The tour will be stopping at feed mills, universities, fairs and civic events around the country. Our spokesperson Bill Goldberg answers questions about world hunger and sustainable food production.
By 2050, the world will need 70 percent more food than we produce today.
About 200 people attended an exciting, one-of-a-kind event at Pioneer Museum and Imperial County Farm Bureau on Saturday, December 7, 2013 and Monday, December 9, 2013.
In collaboration with Elanco and Nutra Blend, the Chew On This Tour featured two custom-built tractor trailers, one is a high-tech movie theater on wheels, and the other a BBQ kitchen on wheels.
This unique road show is shopping at feed mills all around the country, spreading the word about world hunger and sustainable food production.
Participants enjoyed a hearty BBQ meal, watched a film hosted by Bill Goldberg, former NFL lineman and champion wrestler, and tested their knowledge on interactive kiosks.
â€œWe were very excited to host this event,â€ says Dana Campbell with Imperial County Farm Bureau.
â€œIt was an amazing opportunity for our customers and employees to get together and get fired up about what we do for a living. They all play an important role, and the products we sell play an important role, in meeting the challenge of feeding a hungry planet.â€
Some of the eye-opening information from the film included that 870 million people worldwide donâ€™t get enough food. The Global population is expected to grow to more than 9 billion by mid century.
By 2050 we will need 70 percent more food.
Most of it will have to come from efficiency-enhancing products and technologies.
The Carbon footprint of a gallon of milk has decreased by 63 percent since 1944. One cow today produces as much as five cows did back then.
Hunger is one of the biggest problems facing our world today, and there are ways everyone can help.
