2008 World Food Prize Welcome Dinner at Salisbury House

In October 2008, Janis and John Ruan III hosted the traditional welcome dinner for laureates and Council of Advisors members at Salisbury House, a historic venue in Des Moines. Ambassador Quinn presided at the event at which Senator George McGovern, one of the two laureates, participated. This would be the last World Food Prize Events in which Dr. Norman Borlaug would participate. A special feature was the unveiling of a painting honoring Al Clausi, one of the original founders of the World Food Prize Foundation.
