On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about our ability to feed the growing population. One billion people around the globe go to bed hungry every night. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, food production must be doubled by 2050 to feed an expected nine billion people. What are the root causes of hunger? Join the conversation and call in with your questions on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
