We believe that a hunger free world is possible – one in which every child has access to enough of the nutritious food that they need every day and families are empowered to provide for their children and withstand life’s unexpected setbacks.
However, hunger was a daily reality for over 811 million people in 2020, 161 million more than in 2019. The frequency and intensity of conflict, climate extremes and economic downturns are driving hunger globally. COVID19 has further exacerbated these drivers leaving people even further behind than before. Progress in reducing all forms of malnutrition has been undermined, particularly in low- and middle-income countries.
