Alleviating Hunger Worldwide

Our world produces enough food to feed all 8 billion people, yet 815 million are currently hungry due to their lack of resources, an extremely unequal income distribution in the world, and conflict within specific countries. According to the World Food Programme,66 million primary school-age children attend classes hungry across the developing world, with 23 million in Africa alone. This causes poor nutrition in nearly half of deaths in children under five—3.1 million children each year. And, believe it or not, 1 in 6 Americans–around 49 million—struggle regularly to put food on the table.

How Embrace Relief Fights Hunger

To combat this tragic issue, since 2013 Embrace Relief has organized countless food drives and food distribution campaigns. As of today, we have distributed over 1.5 million pounds of food both domestically and internationally to those most in need in over 50 countries. We distributed a great portion of this food directly to people through delivery or community events, the rest to regional food banks and local pantries. Our volunteers devoted their time and energy to soup kitchens, homeless shelters, and community gatherings on many occasions.

A food shortage happens when a region cannot produce enough food for the population. A food shortage is composed of economic, social, and environmental factors. Possible reasons include, but are not limited to, overpopulation, poor government policies, unfair trade rules, and crop failure due to natural disaster, drought, pests, or too much moisture as well as an uneven distribution of natural resources. According to Time magazine, “By 2050, with the global population expected to reach 9.8 billion, our food supplies will be under far greater stress. Demand will be 60% higher than it is today, but climate change, urbanization, and soil degradation will have shrunk the availability of arable land.”
The global food crisis is the result of countries all over the world facing extreme famine to acute food insecurity. According to the World Food Bank, food prices have raised over 20% since January 2020. The Food and Agriculture Organizations of the United Nations states that over 820 million people do not have enough to eat even though the world produces enough food to feed all 7 billion people
Ways an individual can help a food shortage is to cut down on food waste, start a food drive, contact your local government about food policies, donate, support local farmers, send food packages to communities in need, and buy certified sustainable food.
257 million, or 20%, of Africa’s population is experiencing hunger. This is a result of recurring droughts, conflict, pests such as locus, and political and economic instability.
