Giving Compass’ Take:
• The team at GlobalGiving answer questions about ending world hunger and how this is an achievable goal if we all ban together to help.
• From a policy level, how are we addressing hunger in America? What long-term solutions can address hunger at scale?
World hunger is malnutrition caused by common factors affecting millions of people across regions and continents. These factors include wars, bad weather, lack of transportation options, falling crop prices, and rising food prices.
Estimates of how much money it would take to end world hunger range from $7 billion to $265 billion per year.
Why such a big range? Because experts disagree about how to end world hunger. Hunger has many causes:
- Bad weather
- Disease outbreaks
- Falling prices for crops
- Rising prices for food
- Low wages or unemployment
No single solution can address them all.
World hunger is a global problem, and progress will be made community by community. Later on, we’ll list some of the best hunger-fighting programs. Please consider donating to at least one.
