Food Security



There are one billion hungry people walking this planet.

There are one billion overweight people walking alongside of them.

Despite world leaders' plans to cut the number of food insecure people in half by 2015, there were 925 million people fitting that description in 2010. That's up from 800 million in 1996.

We all have a role in creating food security and ensuring our future meals. The following posts attempt to draw attention to the ever-pressing issue of food security.
