The World Food Prize Laureate Award Ceremony is often held in the magnificent Iowa State Capitol Building in Des Moines. The ceremony rivals that of the Nobel Prize, drawing over 800 people from more than 75 countries.
Each year, world-class performers take the stage to honor the World Food Prize Laureate. Past performers have included Ray Charles, John Denver, Chachi Tadesse, and Kathak Gunjan. Following the Ceremony, the celebration continues at the Laureate Award Dinner, held in the Capitol Rotunda.
This year, we will offer the Laureate Award Ceremony virtually for all to enjoy on October 21, 7 - 8:30 p.m. CDT. Join us in the special celebration of the 2021 Laureate on October 21 at: www.worldfoodprize.org/live. View the 2020 Laureate Award Ceremony below.
