This year threw us all a curveball. We were disappointed that we couldn’t host the 2020 Taste of Lakeville due to gathering restrictions. To make the best of a situation, in true Rotary fashion, we moved our auction online and our wine judging to your home. And….YOU SHOWED UP! We are taken aback by the support our community has continued to give for the Taste of Lakeville! We are so thankful!

Absolute Poverty: Surviving on $2 per day

Mike Cooper introduced our speaker Kent Olson. Kent is a Professor Emeritus from the Applied Economics Department at the University of Minnesota.  He worked mainly in farm management here in the U.S. and around the world.  He retired as Associate Director of the Extension Center for Community Vitality which focused on the development of communities in Minnesota.  He also is the Vice President of Iringa Hope.

Kent shared facts and insight on the poverty levels in the US and around the World. Poverty affects 10% of the world population approximately 780,000,000 individuals and with the impact of COVID-19 this rate should rise within the next few years.
