Hunger

About 805 million people around the world go to bed on an empty stomach – and 2 billion don’t know where their next meal will come from.  

  • Reducing food waste in the value chain could be worth $155-405 billion per year by 2030. 
  • Over 45 million children are affected by wasting, which is the most severe form of malnutrition. 
  • 17 million children per years are born undernourished due to pregnancy in undernourished mothers. 

The good news is our charity partners listed below are working to end hunger. Their programs include delivering emergency food supplies in times of crisis, treating the malnourished, training farmers with sustainable agriculture practices and more.
