A Dialogue on Sharing Food

If we are concerned about stopping the enduring crime of starvation amidst plenty, we cannot restrict our actions to the level of our own country or community.

According to the latest UN hunger statistcs, nearly 870 million people, or one in eight, were suffering from chronic undernourishment in 2010-2012. This may be fewer people than previously thought, but analysts point out that the fight against hunger is still far from being won.

Halving Food Losses Would Feed an Additional Billion People

A new study at Aalto University estimates that globally 614 kilocalories per every person a day are lost as a result of food loss in the food production chain. By halving these food losses, we could feed an extra billion people with the currently used resources. By Science Daily
