Sunday (May 1, 2022) the hit CBS News series “60 Minutes” returns with another all-new episode
Harvest of War
Nearly half of Ukrainians say they’re worried about where they’ll find their next meal, according to the United Nations World Food Programme. Since the start of the conflict, the World Food Programme has mobilized food supplies to 2.5 million people, and in the weeks to come they’re poised to provide relief to six million in the country. 60 MINUTES’ Scott Pelley enters Ukraine with David Beasley of the WFP and follows the organization’s efforts to curb the hunger crisis. Pelley reports that it’s not just Ukrainians who are suffering. Ukraine, a major wheat exporter, plays a vital role in feeding the rest of the world, and the war has led to an increase of collateral hunger in other countries.
