World Food Prize

Pre-Expo Reception

Peoples Company holds the pre-expo event at the World Food Prize Hall of Laureates each year as a thoughtful reminder of the mission and impact of the agricultural industry. In honor of Dr. Norman Borlaug, Nobel Peace Prize winner and World Food Prize founder, the century-old Des Moines public library was revived by the World Food Prize Foundation. The building now serves as a museum to recognize significant achievements in agriculture and fighting hunger and an educational facility featuring interactive displays on hunger and food security.
