The World Food Prize: Recognizing and Inspiring Breakthrough Achievements in Feeding the World

Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Dr. Norman Borlaug envisioned a world without hunger. In 1986 the scientist and humanitarian created the World Food Prize to recognize global leaders who have helped advance human development by improving the quality, quantity or availability of food to combat world hunger. Today, this award has come to be called  “the Nobel Prize for Food and Agriculture." The institution is currently soliciting nominations through May 1 at   

Each October, the $250,000 World Food Prize is presented to a worthy individual. As we confront the single greatest challenge in human history – whether we can sustainably feed the more than 9 billion people who will inhabit our planet by 2050 – it is more critical than ever that the World Food Prize honors and inspires great achievements in food and agriculture. To continue Dr. Borlaug’s dream, please consider nominating an individual or individuals who have made the breakthrough achievements needed to ensure adequate food for all humankind in the 21st century.

In providing recognition to modern-day pioneers in food and agriculture, the World Food Prize seeks to shine a spotlight on their critical accomplishments that may also inspire future achievement by scientists, policymakers, leaders of nongovernmental organizations, businesses and others working on key issues and solutions that can have a profound impact on ensuring global food security.

Since its inception, the World Food Prize has been awarded to 49 individuals from around the globe for achievements in a broad array of areas, including nutrition and health; plant and seed science; animal science; soil science, water and conservation; crop protection; food technology and safety; policy, research and extension; infrastructure and distribution; and hunger and poverty alleviation.
