Poultry Federation Brings 'Chew on This' Tour to Oklahoma

Poultry Federation Brings 'Chew on This' Tour to Oklahoma
Approximately 400 people attended an exciting, one-of-a-kind event on the east side of the Oklahoma state capitol grounds Wednesday. In collaboration with Elanco and Nutra Blend, the "Chew On This" tour featured two custom-built tractor trailers, one a high-tech movie theater on wheels and the other a barbecue kitchen on wheels.


This unique road show is stopping at locations all around the country, spreading the word about world hunger and sustainable food production. Participants enjoyed a hearty barbecue meal, watched a film hosted by Bill Goldberg, former NFL lineman and champion wrestler, and tested their knowledge on interactive kiosks.


“We were very excited to host this event,” says Marvin Childers, president of the Poultry Federation. “It was an amazing opportunity for legislators, capitol staff, and special guests to get together and learn about world hunger. They all play an important role in spreading the word and finding solutions for the challenge of Oklahoma hunger.”


Some of the eye-opening information from the film:

· 870 million people worldwide do not get enough food.

· The global population is expected to grow to more than 9 billion by mid-century.

· By 2050 we will need 70 percent more food. most of it will have to come from efficiency-enhancing products and technologies.

· The carbon footprint of a gallon of milk has decreased by 63 percent since 1944. one cow today produces as much as five cows did back then.


All remaining unserved food from the barbecue lunch was donated to Faithworks of the inner city’s after school program. Faithworks of the inner city is a nonprofit ministry designed, to meet the educational, spiritual, and physical needs of inner city children and their families. The "Chew on This" tour provided enough food for 300 meals.
