Watch this 2-minute video to learn more about global food & hunger. Share it with your friends.

One in nine people around the world will go hungry tonight. Due to undernutrition, obesity, vitamin deficiency, or some combination of the three, one-third of the world’s population suffers from malnutrition.

People who are well fed perform better in school, raise healthier children, and create economically stable communities.

There is enough food in the world to feed everyone, so what is causing this imbalance. Famine and other crises play a role. Systemic food waste and unequal geographic food production and distribution are also part of the problem.

Global Citizen identifies 8 areas of focus to help: Girls & Women; Health; Education; Finance & Innovation; Food & Hunger; Water & Sanitation; Environment; and Citizenship.

There are a variety of ways to make your voice heard: Send petitions, emails, or tweets to world leaders. Call governments or join rallies. Global Citizen offers a fun, four-fold path to help:

  • Be A Global Citizen – Watch videos, read articles and learn about the issues that cause extreme poverty.
  • Take Action, Earn Points – To earn points you sign petitions, send emails, share content on the issues you care about.
  • Get Rewards – Use the points you earn by taking action to enter drawings for tickets to concerts or for other rewards.
  • See Impact – Help end extreme poverty by 2030. See how your actions improve the life of people around the world.

Together we can end hunger and close the nutrition gap by making food accessible to all, regardless of where people are born. By solving food and hunger issues across the world, we will go a long way to end extreme poverty by 2030.

It’s time to #showup and join the movement for food and hunger.
