The world produces 17% more food per person today than 30 years ago. But
close to a billion people go to sleep hungry every night.  Want to help us

The world produces 17% more food per person today than 30 years ago. But
close to a billion people go to sleep hungry every night.

The problem is that many people in the world don’t have sufficient land
to grow, or income to purchase, enough food.

Hunger is not a random condition. Women, children, indigenous people, and
other minorities are living with the crushing reality of hunger.

Climate change is rapidly pushing the world’s poorest people – those
least responsible for it – to the limits of subsistence.

Oxfam works with women and men around the world trying to address the root
cause of this problem: inequality.

· 925 million people do not have enough food to eat —more than the
populations of Canada, USA, and the EU.
· Women make up a little over half of the world's population, but they
account for over 60% of the world’s hungry. 
· 98% of the world’s hungry live in developing countries.
· Asia and the Pacific Region is home to over half the world’s
population and nearly two thirds of the world’s hungry people.
