How Can We Solve It?
World Hunger
By: Hudson Shank, Luke Noonan, Alana Alviar, Haleigh Elkins, and Maria Guzman


Using my sources, I found a few ways that we can solve this international issue
Start By Helping Zambia- They are one of the most hungry places and they desperately need help.
We Need To Donate Money For Food Connect Local Farmers- More food will be developed
Feed The Youth / Kids- They will grow up and be healthier, and healthier offspring will develop
Target Women- If we target women's health, they will have healthier babies
12.9% of the world is hungry.
98% of worldwide hunger exists in underdeveloped countries.
Nearly 17,000 children die before age 5 due to hunger every day.
Most starvation is happening in Africa, where one in every four people are hungry.

In Our Community
One in four children in North Carolina have malnutrition. Approximately 160,000 people in North Carolina receive emergency food assistance. To learn more about hunger in our state, to donate, or just to help out, visit ncfoodanks.org
