"The Bill & Melinda Gates and the Howard G. Buffett Foundations last week pledged a total of $75-million to help farmers in sub-Saharan Africa and other impoverished areas sell their surplus crops to support anti-hunger efforts.

The program, called Purchase for Progress, is designed to improve the World Food Programme's ability to purchase food from small or subsistence farmers." (Thanks D.)
