The story by the Star Tribune about nonprofits turning wasted corn into food to stock food banks uses over ten sources throughout the story.
The author, Mike Hughlett, alternates between paraphrasing statements from various government agencies and nonprofits and using direct quotes. He paraphrases information from studies from the United Nations, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and more.
His quotes and information from sources are scattered throughout the story in a way that the reader is not overwhelmed by the amount of facts in the article. The way information is attributed is effective and not too much to take in.
