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? These are questions that you may not be asking, but that hundreds of millions of people are.
The staggering number of hungry people in the world tells us that the answer to these questions is not always positive. A recent global survey showed that there are approximately 795,000,000 people (one in nine) who do not have enough to eat. Furthermore, one in three of these people suffer from malnutrition.
When a person is food secure, they have reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. In the month of August, Kutoa will be partnering with organizations that seek to provide people with adequate food, education, and self-sustainable options.
