The EndingHunger movement is a growing community of people worldwide who are no longer willing to stand by while hundreds of millions fellow human beings go hungry. It grew out of "The 1billionhungry project" launched in May 2010.
Chronic hunger is a simple, nasty reality for the person who suffers. But bringing an end to hunger is a complex challenge.
The movement has one major goal: to end hunger in our lifetime. Bringing new members to the movement and creating public events of all kinds is the method of attack.
Members of the movement are active in staging public events designed to pressure politicians and leaders into giving top priority to ending hunger. Members also discuss hunger issues, and share books, articles and multimedia. The EndingHunger movement does not belong to any one institution, but is coordinated by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. It links with and has mutual support arrangements with like-minded organizations and people everywhere.
Learn about the forces that cause hunger, who’s working on the problem and what’s working. Be informed. You’ll find a lot of resources on the website: www.endpoverty2015.org
