UN Food-Aid Chief Responds to Elon Musk Challenge With Famine Plan
(Bloomberg) -- The head of the United Nations’ food aid arm presented a detailed plan to help avoid famine in 2022 to Tesla chief Elon Musk, responding to a challenge from the world’s richest man to explain how a donation from him could help alleviate global hunger.
Musk, the world’s richest man, had raised the possibility of selling Tesla shares if the WFP could show how $6 billion would “solve world hunger.”
In the breakdown entitled “A One-Time Appeal to Billionaires,” the WFP said that about $3.5 billion would be used for food and delivery, with another $2 billion going toward cash and food vouchers.
