Ambassador Tony Hall
Ambassador Hall and Hunger...
Tony Hall created the Hall Hunger Initiative in 2015 as part of his life-long work to end hunger. He represented Dayton in Congress from 1979 to 2002. In 1984, he witnessed children starving to death in Ethiopia. That experience changed his life. Since then, he has become one of the world’s leading advocates for ending hunger and improving human rights in America and around the world.
While in Congress, he fasted for 22 days to call attention to hunger, leading the World Bank to invest $100 million towards reducing hunger. After Congress, he was appointed UN Ambassador for Food and Agriculture. He has personally worked with those experiencing hunger in more than 100 countries, learned from Mother Teresa in Calcutta and has three times nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. He created the Hall Hunger Initiative in 2015 to focus on local food issues.
In addition to his work at HHI, Ambassador Hall also serves as Executive Director Emeritus of the Alliance to End Hunger.
