Hunger goes beyond the dinner table. Constantly worrying about where your child’s next meal will come from makes it impossible to plan for the future. Poor crops means no income and no savings; escaping from poverty is a fantasy.
- Almost 690 million people in the world are hungry and malnourished.
- Nearly 98% of whom live in developing countries.
- In the countries we serve, families survive on one meal or less 5 to 6 months of the year.
This “hunger gap” perpetuates the cycle of poverty and leads to stunted growth in children, violence, and gender inequality.
