Unfortunately, it is a fact that millions of people go hungry every day. It is a fact that millions of children under the age of 5 are malnourished and many die as a result of hunger. There are over 50 countries that do not produce enough food to feed their population but not all hunger is an effect of food production. Consider those in the eye of the storm, literally, natural disasters, conflict, poverty and of course poor agriculture all contribute to the problem.
We can’t turn our backs on this issue. The United Nations developed goals for the 21st century and one of them was to cut the proportion of hunger in people around the world in half.
