World Food Day

There’s some good news to report this year for World Food Day. The vast majority of developing countries have reduced child hunger rates since 1990. And with five years to go, 62 of 118 countries are on track to meet the U.N. Millennium Development Goal of cutting child hunger rates in half. But progress still isn’t reaching many who need it most, and in some places, things are getting worse. In recent years the economic downturn, volatile food prices, and extreme weather have also contributed to growth in the absolute numbers of hungry and malnourished children.
