The Problem

Hunger can affect people from all walks of life. Millions of people in America are just one job loss, missed paycheck, or medical emergency away from hunger. But hunger doesn't affect everyone equally - some groups face like children, seniors, and Black, Indigenous, and other people of color face hunger at much higher rates. Hunger also most often affects our neighbors who live in poverty.

Hunger in the US

  • According to the USDA's latest Household Food Insecurity in the United States report, more than 35 million people in the United States experienced hunger in 2019. (Feeding America)
  • The rates of food insecurity are much higher for African American, Latino, and Native American families because of systemic racial injustice. To achieve a hunger-free America, we must address the root causes of hunger and structural and systemic inequities. (Feeding America)

 

Hunger in the Philippines

  • Nearly one-third of families -- or 7.6 million households -- did not have enough food to eat at least once in the previous three months, its September survey showed. Among them were 2.2 million families experiencing "severe hunger" -- the highest ever. (France24)
  • About 59 million people were "moderately or severely food insecure" between 2017 and 2019 -- the highest in Southeast Asia -- the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization said in a report. (France24)

World Hunger

  • Globally, about 8.9% of the world’s population — 690 million people — go to bed on an empty stomach each night. Since 2014, the number of people affected by hunger has been slowly on the rise. If it continues at this rate, it’ll exceed 840 million by 2030. (World Vision)
  • The hunger Sustainable Development Goal calls for ending hunger in the world by 2030. Unfortunately — with world hunger on the rise — this goal will likely not be met, even without considering the effects of COVID-19. Estimates suggest that an additional 83 million to 132 million more people will be chronically hungry due to the pandemic. (World Vision)
