Top of page

The film reports on a meeting of the International Federation of Agricultural Producers at Guelph, Ontario, and its plan to help solve the dire problem of world hunger--a problem sharpened by the birth of 55,000 more human beings, arriving "for breakfast," each day. Delegates emphasize the plight of the many nations who face starvation while others have a surplus of food. The Canadian delegate presents a proposal for an international agency to ensure fair distribution of food. It is endorsed by the conference, which challenges the world to make it work.
