Moose Jaw Times-Herald: Lisa's Corner: Our world, our fight for zero hunger
By Lisa Goudy
There is good news and bad news when it comes to food.
The good news is that, according to the United Nations World Food Programme’s (WFP) The State of Food Insecurity in the World 2014 report, the number of hungry people is down by 37 million. The bad news is there are still 805 million people who are hungry.
The WFP, which is the largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger in the world, has a goal of “zero hunger.” This message was marked further on Thursday, which was World Food Day.
I would love to see that happen. If we could live in a world where no one was hungry and where every child who went to school had a lunch, it would be a far better world.
