The president of the World Food Prize, Kenneth Quinn, will be honored
 in Britain’s House of Lords on March 5 for his humanitarian contributions while serving as U.S. ambassador to Cambodia. Quinn will become only the second individual ever honored as the recipient of the Steven Krulis Champion of Humanity Distinguished Service Award. The award honors Quinn’s service over several decades in confronting and countering genocide in relation to the people of Cambodia. While assigned as an American Foreign Service Officer on the remote Cambodian border in Vietnam, he was widely acknowledged as the first person anywhere to report, in 1974, on the genocidal policies of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge. Two additional events highlighting Quinn’s achievements will take place at the Genocide Memorial in Rwanda on March 1 and at the UK National Holocaust Centre and Museum in Nottinghamshire, England, on March 3
