OUR THEMES

THEME

FOOD SECURITY

There are a lot of factors that determine whether or not you will have something to eat each day, most of which none of us really give much thought to. Will there be a flood? Will war break out? Will there be enough money to buy food? When will I get to eat again during this global pandemic? These are questions that you may not be asking, but that hundreds of millions of people are.

For the first time in decades, food security is affecting every community around the globe. Millions of people do not know where their next meal will come from because of a loss of a job, a lockdown of a country, or lack of supplies available. As a result of COVID-19, food is becoming increasingly unavailable and unaffordable in many countries, causing a widespread hunger, malnutrition and death. Many people are "day-labourers" which means they have to work that day to earn food for the day. When these people are living in extreme poverty they do not have any savings to get them through a crisis or lockdown. So they and their dependents go hungry.

When a person is food secure, they have reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. In the month of May, Kutoa will be partnering with organizations that seek to provide people with adequate food for those who are threatened by starvation during the global pandemic.
