DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Winners of the World Food Prize Foundation's annual award will be announced Wednesday in Washington D.C. The award ceremony will feature Secretary of State John Kerry as the keynote speaker. 

The prize was founded in 1986 by Norman Borlaug, who received the Nobel Prize in 1970 for boosting agricultural production in what has become known as the "Green Revolution".

The prize honors those who make contributions to improving food throughout the world. The World Food Prize Foundation is based in Des Moines.

The recipients of the prize will attend an award ceremony at the state capitol in October.
