We are one planet and one people. Oceans may separate us physically, cultural and language differences may influence our perspectives, but today on World Food Day we are reminded that the needs of the few cannot be ignored by the many.
Few needs are as universally pervasive as having enough food on a daily basis. Yet world hunger remains an international blight afflicting people in both developed and developing countries alike. An estimated 1 out of 9 (or 805 million of the 7.3 billion) people in the world suffered from chronic undernourishment in 2012-2014, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization.
On World Food Day and everyday, Packaged Facts salutes those dedicated to eradicating world hunger. Together we can change the world.
