It is hard to believe that hunger is a daily reality for 795 million people around the world. Hunger and malnutrition have devastating effects on individuals, families and communities - making people more susceptible to diseases, causing physical deficiencies due to lack of nutrients and stunting mental abilities.
Hunger is a complex issue, usually compounded by poverty, unemployment, lack of agricultural infrastructure, war and natural disasters.
Right now, we face a global food crisis that needs our urgent attention - not only abroad, but also in our own backyards.
Yet, there is hope. Lack of food is not the cause of hunger. In fact, enough food is produced each year to feed everyone on the planet. The key to solving hunger is improving vulnerable communities' access to nutritious food. Improving access to food not only meets immediate physical needs, but also prevents long term negative effects on the health of individuals, families and communities – ensuring they not just survive, but thrive.
Hunger is a solvable problem, and every time you buy a FEED product, you are participating in the solution. You are investing in better futures for children and families around the world.
