We're HarvestPlus, and we're competing in the MacArthur Foundation's 100&Change competition for $100 million! Our proposal is to biofortify staple crops in Africa (see below). AUA!
Hey reddit! We're HarvestPlus, one of eight organizations competing in the MacArthur Foundation's 100&Change competition for one $100 million grant! We're here to answer questions about our proposal.
About our proposal: we are trying to eliminate "hidden hunger" in Africa, dangerous and damaging nutrient deficiencies, by fortifying staple crops, since more than two billion people globally have diets that are lacking sufficient vitamins and minerals.

We will be on at 10AM ET to answer your questions. AUA!
