Other facts about hunger around the world are as follows. 1. 13.1 percent of the world 's population is starving. Approximately 925 million people are malnourished every day, consuming less than 2,100 calories recommended per day 2. The world produces enough food to feed the 7 billion people living in the world, but the hungry also have no land to grow food or money to buy it.

Because of Feeding America, food banks in the U.S. are able to feed millions of people who can’t provide themselves with food. “Feeding America is the nationwide network of 200 food banks that leads the fight against hunger in the United States” (Charity Navigator) and without food banks or the help of volunteers, Feeding America would not be able to finish their mission. “At feeding America, 98% of all donations raised go directly into programs and services for people in need.” (Feeding America).

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.
