WHY HUNGER

Severe food insecurity occurs when populations go entire days without eating due to the lack of money, access to food, or other resources.

690 million people go to bed hungry every single night. By joining the share a meal movement we can change that.

Hunger is the world's worst pandemic. Vulnerable communities around the world are sending a clear, urgent and repeated message:
“Hunger may kill us before coronavirus”.

It is a fundamental right of everyone to be free from hunger - to have physical and economic access to adequate food.

Yet an estimated 821 million people around the world, many of whom are children, go to bed hungry every single night.

An estimated 14 million children under the age of five worldwide suffer from severe acute malnutrition, also known as severe wasting, yet only 25 percent of severely malnourished children have access to lifesaving treatment.

Small farmers, herders, and fishermen produce about 70 percent of the global food supply, yet they are especially vulnerable to food insecurity – poverty and hunger are most acute among rural populations.

Not only is this completely unfair, but it is also ENTIRELY preventable.
