Enough Is Enough -
Fact: The world produces more than enough food to feed every single person on the planet.
Creating a World Where All Are Fed
However, right now, nearly a billion people around the world do not have enough food to eat. One out of every seven people will go to bed hungry tonight. Every day, nearly 18,000 children die from malnutrition and hunger-related diseases. That’s one child every five seconds. Hunger kills more people each year than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. In the United States alone, 17.2 million households, or approximately one in seven, were deemed “food insecure” in 2010. This is the highest number ever recorded.
Why are we still facing such a tragic hunger crisis?
The time for waiting is over. It’s time for answers. It’s time for action. It’s time to do our part to make sure everyone around the world is fed, in our lifetimes. We have the collective power now to end the scourge of hunger for good.
The Food for All Summit: One Day to Nourish the World
