40 Chances Logo

During the Scale Up Conference, “40 Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World – The Photography of Howard G. Buffett,” will be on display on the Purdue University campus. Forty photographs taken by Howard G. Buffett document the world hunger crisis as part of a global awareness campaign to find lasting solutions for this hunger crisis. Buffett, a philanthropist and farmer, believes that each of us has about 40 chances to accomplish our life goals, just as farmers have about 40 growing seasons to improve their harvests.

The photographs will be displayed in Rueff Galleries in Pao Hall on the Purdue University campus. Scale Up Conference sessions will be in Purdue’s Stewart Center, which is 1 block north of Pao Hall. Conference attendees are encouraged to visit the photography display during the registration period of the conference on Tuesday, Sept. 25, 1-4 p.m. Also, the closing reception on Sept. 27 will be in the Rueff Galleries of Pao Hall.

"40 CHANCES: Finding Hope in a Hungry World" was developed by the Newseum in collaboration with Howard G. Buffett Foundation. The Newseum, headquartered in Washington, D.C., promotes, explains and defends free expression and the five freedoms of the First Amendment.

The Howard G. Buffett Foundation is the exclusive sponsor of the “40 CHANCES: Finding Hope in a Hungry World” exhibit.​
