Transcript of Hunger

Hunger Hunger is an increasing problem throughout all parts of the world. There are 925,000,000 people in the world suffering from hunger Out of that 925 million, 578 are in Asia and the Pacific While Asia has the largest number of those who suffer from hunger, Central and eastern Africa have the largest population of undernourished people; meaning that they lack nutritional elements The country with the most damage from undernourishment is the Congo, in which 55,199,393 of the 73,599,190 people are malnourished. While hunger is the worst in foreign countries, there is still a great deal of hunger in the United States In the United States, one in seven households are food insecure, meaning there is not a steady flow of food being brought into the home. Even our nation's capital, Washington D.C., is victim to hunger. The District of Columbia (D.C.) has a rate of 30.7% of its child population living in homes that are food insecure. That means that 30,850 children are suffering from food insecurity. Even in our state, there is hunger In North Carolina, 621,650 children live in homes that are food insecure. The Winston Salem area ranked third in the United States for food hardship, which is the inability to provide adequate food. Even the county we currently live in, Franklin County, feels the effects of hunger. Franklin County, part of the first and thirteenth congressional districts, rated eighty-second in the population of people who are experiencing food hardship. Hunger is a serious problem that needs to be stopped. There are certain organizations that work to fight hunger, but it's still a problem. However, with everyone's help, it can be stopped.
