Chronic hunger is not just about food: it is a phenomenon linked to the rights of women and girls, income opportunities, health, education, social justice, the environment, and climate change.

At the heart of all these issues is one thing: people.

World Hunger Day, commemorated on May 28th, is a time to highlight the critical need for sustainable solutions to hunger and poverty and to inspire everyone to be a part of the answer.

The Path to Zero Hunger Includes Empowering Women

Women make up 60% of the 821 million people who are food insecure globally. The reasons why women suffer more acutely from hunger are rooted in several complex and often interwoven issues, including culture, gender inequity, access to resources, education and more.

By focusing on solutions that include gender equity and women empowerment, greater impact can be made to reduce malnutrition, food insecurity and hunger. By ensuring women have access to critical resources, global rates of hunger can be significantly reduced by up to 150 million people.
