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 826 million people in 2021, 150 million more than in 2019. The Ukraine war has added increased pressure on global grain supply, compounded by climate breakdown and economic downturns, driving acute hunger on a global scale. COVID19 has continued to exacerbate 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.
