Food & Hunger Statistics

Despite the fact that more than enough food is produced across the world to sustain the world’s population, up to 811 million people go hungry. After a decade of steady decline, world hunger is on the increase, impacting 9.9% of the world’s population. Between 2019 and 2020, the number of people who are undernourished increased by up to 161 million, a catastrophe fueled in part by war, climate change, and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Prior to this recent surge, the globe has made considerable progress in combating hunger. Indeed, in 2000, world leaders joined the UN and civil society to pledge to achieving eight Millennium Development Goals by 2015, the first of which was “to end extreme poverty.”
