Feeding America is a nationwide network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs that provides food and services to people each year. Together this network is the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief organization. Recently, more families and individuals begin to struggle with hunger due to the cost of living increasing and income from employers not being sufficient enough to feed and take care of a family.

When prices rise, consumers often move to cheaper, less-nutritious foods, increasing the risks of micronutrient defects and other forms of malnutrition, which can have long-term unfavorable effects on people’s health, development and productivity.

Thomas Morton’s article, Oh This Is Great, wants people to have a greater understanding on what’s going in our world.People need to understand that our ocean is a pile of trash. As Morton stated, “The ocean is downstream of everything.” Considering the fact, people are thoughtlessly tossing their trash onto the floor, are sadly ending up into the ocean- where our food chain is greatly affected by. Therefore, being aware of where our trash in ending up will change the views on people’s perspective. If we are continuing to throw trash everywhere we are technically “eating our own refuse.” As we throw trash on to the floor, it will end up in the ocean causing it to get suck into the jellyfish’s mouth. Then, little fishes will begin to consume

Our world has been struggling with hunger for a while, but why doesn 't anyone put an end to it? There are people who are dying of hunger while we sit down for three big, fat meals each day.

After actually hand washing around one ton clothes at Washington, ‘Wise’ President Joe Biden reconfirmed his second thought of a belated entry into the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

More than a third of all of the food that’s produced never makes it to a person’s table. It is either spoiled on it’s way or it is thrown away when people buy too much and they get rid of the extras. In California itself, nearly 6 million tons of food is throwing out in the waste. Most of the food waste gets thrown out in the landfills, creating Methane, a strong greenhouse gas. Which leads to the contribution of climate change and the rise of temperatures. Another problem is that 42.2 million Americans live in food insecure households. So
