I’m at the library on my lunch break, searching for a good book to read in my downtime. My concentration is broken when I hear whispers coming from a nearby table. “Is that the Food Stamp Lady? I think it is. She’s great – helped me out a lot. You should talk with her.”
Hunger is the world’s #1 health risk, with 1 in 7 people going hungry worldwide. Hunger kills more people every year than AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis combined. Close to 900 million people do not have enough to eat and 98 percent of them live in developing countries.
