Encounter Hunger & Food


As Catholics, we recognize that prayer guides our actions, it binds us in solidarity to one another, and connects us more deeply with the grace that flows from God.

We are in front of a global scandal of around one billion – one billion people who still suffer from hunger today. We cannot look the other way and pretend this does not exist. The food available in the world is enough to feed everyone. (Caritas Internationalis One Human Family, Food for All Campaign Message)

One in nine people – just over 800 million worldwide - goes to sleep hungry every day. However, this is down more than 100 million over the last decade, and 209 million lower than in 1990–92.
(2015 Hunger Report , FAO)

19% of all countries in the world are food secure. 48% of all countries in the world are somewhat secure in food resources. 32% face food insecurity.
