Hunger: A Global Issue 

Needs a Global Response

THIS WORLD HUNGER DAY, WE LOOK AT THE RAPIDLY CHANGING LANDSCAPE OF GLOBAL HUNGER AND POVERTY.

World Hunger Day is an initiative by The Hunger Project. 

Hunger is not just about food. Hunger and poverty are inextricably linked to a nexus of issues including: healthcare, decent work opportunities, education, social justice, the rights of women and girls, the environment and climate change. The Hunger Project uses an innovative, holistic approach that tackles all these issues, and empowers people living in hunger to become the agents of their own development and lift their communities above the poverty line for good – this is the sustainable end of poverty.

This year, we’re using World Hunger Day to look at hunger as a whole.

Join us as we acknowledge and explore the increased risk of hunger and poverty in vulnerable communities – internationally and domestically – as, together, we confront the COVID-19 pandemic.

More than 820 million people in the world do not have enough food. 

Join us on World Hunger Day to make a difference in the most vulnerable communities.

Celebrate #WorldHungerDay

This World Hunger Day we acknowledge how linked and interconnected we truly are. We encourage communities, individuals, organizations and businesses to recognize the solutions to our problems lie within each of us. If we do what we can individually, then collectively we face global crises together. Write a post, share a photo, or a video of what you can do, as an individual to invest in an end to hunger.

ENDING HUNGER

At The Hunger Project, we believe ending hunger is possible when we empower people to become agents of change, lifting themselves--and their communities-- out of hunger andpoverty for the long term. 

The solution to hunger is not about hand-outs and a top-down approach, but a bottom-up approach that starts with women, works with local government and mobilizes communities to take self-reliant actions. Learn more
