Don’t let anyone go hungry on World Hunger Day

Today is World Hunger Day a day to reflect on just how much food we have here in the United Kingdom and just how much we waste of it when there is real food shortages around the world. UKVending takes is responsibility to source its tea’s, coffee’s and other produce from organisation around the world that work to improve the lives of people who grow and sell these crops. But around the world there are many organisations that are not as ethical as us. World Hunger Day is an initiative that was created in 2011 by The Hunger Project, a non-profit organisation that works towards ending world hunger.

The aim of World Hunger Day, which is being observed for its eighth consecutive year, is to raise “awareness to the more than 820 million people living in chronic hunger”, The Hunger Project states.

“On World Hunger Day – and every day – we ask the world to come together with a shared goal of realising healthy, fulfilling lives of self-reliance and dignity for all people,” the company explains.

World Hunger Day’s website highlights some truly shocking statistics about the way in which hunger affects vulnerable communities around the world. These include the fact that 60 per cent of the world’s population suffering from hunger is women; 98 per cent of the world’s undernourished live in developing countries and that “hunger kills more than Aids, malaria and tuberculosis combined”.

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.?
