UN Official Says McGovern Was Tireless Advocate

UN Official Says McGovern Was Tireless Advocate
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The director-general of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization says the world has lost a tireless advocate for the hungry with the death of George McGovern.

Jose Graziano da Silva says McGovern's work helped give millions of the world's poorest children a proper nutritional foundation.

McGovern died Sunday at age 90. The former South Dakota senator and 1972 presidential candidate worked throughout his life to help the hungry. President John F. Kennedy in 1960 named him head of the Food for Peace program, which sends U.S. commodities around the world.

From 1998 to 2001, McGovern was U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Agencies for Food and Agriculture. In 2000 he and former Sen. Bob Dole created a program to provide meals to poor students around the world.
