Nearly 1 billion people in the world go hungry every day, almost half being a direct result of natural disasters that destroy crops, storage, shelter, and access to drinkable water. Despite this global epidemic it’s estimated that we still produce enough food globally to feed 10 billion people. In other words, even though more than enough food is produced, 1 in 7 people still go hungry. Food production is not the issue, distribution is. Luckily, this is a problem that can be fixed on many levels.
-It is estimated that over 50.2 million Americans live in food insecure households, more than 17 million of them are children. This means that they ate less than they needed, skipped meals, or even went a whole day without eating.
-In the US, hunger isn’t caused by a lack of food, but rather the continued prevalence of poverty.
-Over 20 million children receive free or reduced-price lunch each school day. Less than half of them get breakfast and only 10 percent have access to summer feeding sites.
-40 percent of food is thrown out in the US every year, or about $165 billion worth. All of this uneaten food could feed 25 million Americans.
