Hunger Facts
  • Hunger and poverty claim 25,000 lives everyday.
  • More than 850 million people on earth do not have enough to eat – this is more than the combined population of the United States, Canada and the European Union.
  • Every 5 seconds a child dies of hunger or related causes.
  • In 2004, almost 1 billion people lived below the international poverty line, earning less than $1 per day
  • Among this group of poor people, many have problems obtaining adequate, nutritious food for themselves and their families. As a result, 820 million people in the developing world are undernourished. They consume less than the minimum amount of calories essential for sound health and grow
  • Undernourishment negatively affects people’s health, productivity, sense of hope and overall well-being. A lack of food can stunt growth, slow thinking, sap energy, hinder fetal development and contribute to mental retardation
  • Socially, the lack of food erodes relationships and feeds shame so that those most in need of support are often least able to call on it
  • Most of the widespread hunger in a world of plenty results from grinding, deeply rooted poverty. In any given year, however, between 5 and 10 percent of the total can be traced to specific events: droughts or floods, armed conflict, political, social and economic disruptions
