Although according to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), enough food is being produced to feed the world’s population, one in seven people do not get enough food to live a decent life. A child dies from malnutrition every five seconds. Former UN Special Rapporteur on the right to food, Jean Ziegler, added that “every child who dies from hunger is assassinated” because it could have been prevented. "And we have a herd of market traders, speculators and financial bandits who have turned wild and constructed a world of inequality and horror. We have to put a stop to this," he said.
The world’s most food-insecure and hungry are often directly involved in food production, majority of them live in developing countries. Just because some poor families do not have food on their tables does not mean there is not enough. It is just spread unevenly.
