Hunger in a world of plenty is a scandal
To Caritas, dying of hunger in a world of plenty is a scandal. While 850 million people are currently denied their right to adequate food – and a third of all food production lost or wasted – only profound reforms and a shift towards sustainable food systems will enable us to end hunger by 2025 and feed 9.6 billion by 2050.
Food consumption and food waste must be tackled. Small farmers should be supported as the real engine of local markets and the most resilient actors in poor countries and situations.
By contributing to this Caritas Internationalis’ campaign, Caritas Europa and its 49 member organisations in 46 European countries, including Caritas Finland, firmly point to the right to food being a basic human right.
