Beyond the numbers and words often used to describe it, understanding the full scope of hunger and malnutrition can be daunting. The resources below are here to help you understand the issue and the effect it has on the 815 million people impacted by hunger.
Considering how easy it is for untrue statements and misconceptions to spread in our age of information, we urge you to learn the facts for yourself. We’ve compiled a list of useful figures and quotes to equip you on our shared journey to a hunger-free world.
Education is the first step to understanding and thoroughly addressing any issue — and world hunger is no different. But all the knowledge in the world won’t solve hunger unless we all resolve to share and act on it. We encourage you to use what you’ve learned to take concrete steps, and engage in our hunger action programs. Be a hunger champion and help change minds, wills and policies in pursuit of zero hunger.
