What Can You Do?

Ending hunger around the world is not just about providing people with enough food — the calories. It’s also about providing the right nutrients. Globally, 149 million children are stunted and will not have the chance to achieve their full potential because of poor nutrition early in life.

Our 2020 report charts a path to ending global hunger and malnutrition by tackling inequities within food systems. 

In order to prevent the 2.6 million childhood deaths each year that result from malnutrition, addressing the 1,000 days between a woman’s pregnancy and her child’s second birthday is crucial. With the right nutrition during this period, we can ensure healthy body and brain development, stronger immune systems, more years of education, and a higher lifetime earning potential for millions of children..

Change is inevitable

Agriculture and Trade

Trade can be a powerful tool for the reduction of poverty in developing nations. But our agriculture and trade policy has sometimes undermined the efforts of African countries to take the first step out of poverty, this must change for us to move forward

Climate change is a hunger issue

People in low-income countries face the impact of climate change on a daily basis – even though they contribute least to greenhouse gas emissions. Erratic and more severe weather patterns affect their livelihoods and food security.

Food-Aid Reforms

Our government also provides ongoing food aid to address the “silent disaster” of hunger and malnutrition around the world. This food aid helps break the cycle of poverty and hunger and puts people and communities on better economic footing.

Smart reforms to food aid enable more food to be purchased closer to where the need is, rather than shipped slowly overseas from the U.S. This not only allows food to reach people in need months sooner, but also less is spent on transportation costs. Changes also ensure that vulnerable people get better nutrition in the food they receive, especially pregnant women and young children. Children need nutritious food so that they can get a healthy start in life. In addition to needed reforms, Bread also wants food-aid programs to continue to be fully funded..”
