Hunger intro

  1. 1. Become Aware of Hunger
  2. 2. June 1: A Global View of Hunger
  3. 3. Tonight: A Hunger Banquet
  4. 4. The sensation of hunger, a lack of food in your stomach, is universal. But there are different forms of hunger which are each measured in different ways: • Under-nourishment • Malnutrition • Wasting
  5. 5. • Under-nourishment: food intake does not include enough calories (energy) to meet minimum physical needs for an active life. • At present, there are 842 million undernourished people worldwide, most of them in developing countries. • Malnutrition means 'badly nourished’: inadequate intake of protein, energy and micronutrients • Starved of the right nutrition, people will die from common infections like measles or diarrhea. • Wasting: indicates acute malnutrition that reflects a recent and severe process that has led to substantial weight loss. • This is usually the result of starvation and/or disease.
  6. 6. Approximately 870 million people in the world do not eat enough to be healthy. That means that one in every eight people on Earth goes to bed hungry each night. (Source: FAO, 2012)
  7. 7. 66 million primary school-age children attend classes hungry across the developing world, with 23 million in Africa alone.
  8. 8. Under-nutrition linked to one third of all deaths in children under the age of five in developing countries.
  9. 9. The first 1,000 days of a child’s life, from pregnancy through age two, are the critical window in which to tackle under-nutrition. A proper diet in this period can protect children from the mental and physical stunting that can result from malnutrition.
  10. 10. One in four of the world's children are stunted. In developing countries the proportion can rise to one in three. 15 month-old well-nourished U.S. child
  11. 11. The United Nations World Food Programme calculates that US$3.2 billion is needed per year to reach all 66 million hungry school-age children. (Approximately what the EU spends on ice cream)
  12. 12. Is there enough food to feed everyone? YES The world produces enough food for everybody. In fact, there is enough food for everyone to have 2,800 calories a day, but many people do not have access to food.

  16. 16. Population growth
  17. 17. Poverty 1.4 billion people in developing countries live on $1.25 a day or less. Rural areas account for three out of every four people living on less than $1.25 a day. 22,000 children die each day due to conditions of poverty.
