Hunger and malnutrition is the number one risk to health worldwide – greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. But for such a big problem, even the smallest contribution can help. Did you know that today is World Food Day? Did you know the world has enough resources to feed every hungry person? It will just take the political will of everyone.
Join World Food Day USA today, October 16th to rally the world in ending hunger.Hunger and malnutrition is the number one risk to health worldwide – greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. But for such a big problem, even the smallest contribution can help. Nearly one in seven people suffers from undernourishment, yet the world has the means to eliminate hunger and fuel sustainable development.
There is broad agreement that smallholder farmers will provide much of the extra food needed to feed more than 9 billion people by 2050. One of the keys to achieving food security is to support and invest in cooperatives, producer organizations and other rural institutions.You can be part of the solution.
