Francisco Naples, Florida Hungry children in Somalia awaiting food. Is there enough food? Yes! there is enough food for everyone on the earth to have at least 2720 calories per day. How can we prevent it? Giving our time and effort into local food distributors or food banks. We can start small in our community. By giving, packaging, or distributing food, we can save lives.

My Own Efforts My church and I packaging food at Meals of Hope. That's Me! We Packaged 12,663 meals in 2 hours! Imagine what we could accomplish if we all helped. Somalia DONATE If there is enough food, where is it all going? The food produced simply goes to waste: of the 50% of food that doesn't get eaten, its going bad. If we could donate this undistributed food to people in need wouldn't we save lives? The world produces enough food for 100% of the worlds population. The food production goes up with the population.

Donate just $1, and you can feed a child overseas for an entire day. http://jaredslighterside.blogspot.com/2011/02/starving-children-in-africa.html Citation: Money plays as a leading cause of hunger in the world. People can't sustain themselves if they do not have money to do so. Many of people in the African region have to live on a average $1 a day. For $4 a month, you could give up one day's worth of coffee to save a child's life. That's the price of a simple cup of coffee! They're lucky to afford rice, or maize. http://www.povertyprogram.com/Cup%20of%20Joe.pdf Citation: Hunger kills more people than AIDS, Malaria, and Tuberculosis combined! Invest in better agriculture, support small farmers, link farmers to markets, and provide better health care Educate By educating the population, using proper tools, and training the people. They can become successful and have stable jobs. If we provide the knowledge they need to do so, it can save their families, and potentially boost their economy as well. The more educated inhabitants, there is increased numbers in the labor force, resulting in more money! The $ is the problem, without it people can't buy food. If people make more money, they can survive with the proper food needs. World Hunger By: Cameron Ingersoll Globally we can make a difference
