Random 59: Blessed Bargains

Not just humans but

blessed are animals which are well fed.

There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread ~ Mahatma Gandhi

HUNGER FAST FACTS

  1. There is more than enough food produced in the world to feed everyone on the planet.
  2. As many as 811 million people worldwide go to bed hungry each night.
  3. Small farmers, herders, and fishermen produce about 70 percent of the global food supply, yet they are especially vulnerable to food insecurity – poverty and hunger are most acute among rural populations. 
  4. Conflict is a cause and consequence of hunger. In 2020, conflict was the primary driver of hunger for 99.1 million people in 23 countries
  5. An estimated 14 million children under the age of five worldwide suffer from severe acute malnutrition, also known as severe wasting, yet only 25 percent of acutely malnourished children have access to lifesaving treatment.

  1. Worthy of more than just praying; start doing, giving and feeding.
    “Suppose a brother or sister in Christ comes to you in need of clothes or something to eat. And you say to them, ‘God be with you! I hope you stay warm and get plenty to eat,’ but you don’t give them the things they need. If you don’t help them, your words are worthless. It is the same with faith. If it is just faith and nothing more — if it doesn’t do anything — it is dead.” James 1:15-17

    1. Nope.

      Roughly a third of the world’s food is wasted. That’s about 1.3 billion tons a year.
      The world loses an astounding quantity of food every year. It blows your mind but a third of all food for human consumption in the world is lost or wasted. 1.3 billion tons of food suitable for human consumption and 1.6 billion tons of so-called “primary product equivalents” are lost or wasted. 😪

      1. I can’t begin to imagine, we were never allowed waste in my family … other constantly reminded us of the starving millions in India. Then once I saw the abject poverty there I can’t waste food … it’s criminal!

      Hope you keep this in mind when you begin your career as a civil servant Lokesh. We need helping hands.

  2. Sad and heart-touching, but very important, facts.
    Growing up very poor, we only had enough food because we grew our own vegetable gardens and fruit trees.
    For decades my family has dedicated itself to support/and feed the hungry locally, nationally, and internationally.
    (((HUGS))) ❤
