World Food Day is celebrated October 16th in honor of the founding of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 1945. Its goal is to achieve food security for all, and make sure that people have regular access to enough high-quality food to lead active, healthy lives.

enough food produced to end world hunger now?

The startling truth is that the world produces enough food to feed the hungry. No one should suffer or die from hunger related diseases, and yet they do. Feed the Children exists to end the pandemic of hunger.

who will eat today?

One in eight children across the globe lives with hunger and doesn’t know where their next meal will come from.

One in six children in America lives with hunger and doesn’t know where their next meal will come from.

More people will die from hunger related diseases this year than from malaria, tuberculosis or AIDS combined.

60% of 815 million affected by hunger are women.
