The award, established in 1982, is given annually by World Hunger Year to journalists who cover stories related to hunger and poverty around the world. Joel Berg’s fellow nominees in the Books category include Ken Wells for The Good Pirates of the Forgotten Bayous: Fighting to Save a Way of Life in the Wake of Hurricane Katrina (Yale University Press) and Ronnie Greene’s Night Fire: Big Oil, Poison Air, and Margie Richard’s Fight to Save Her Town. The recipients of the award will be selected in June by an independent panel of judges.
What more can we add to that—besides, of course, our heartiest congratulations to Joel Berg, and to All You Can Eat.
