Just Desserts to the Tune of $500,000

Check out one of the newest MacArthur Fellows, agriculturalist Will Allen: the New York Times ran a story on him today, and the MacArthur Foundation has posted a video on YouTube.

In this time of economic crisis, it’s hard to imagine any work more worthy of recognition and investment than that of ensuring that everyone on the planet has “equal access to healthy, high-quality, safe and affordable food.” I can’t wait to see how Mr. Allen invests his “no-strings attached” $500K.
