The amount of food provided in the Ghettos during the Holocaust was scarce. “Hunger was one of the greatest problems. The meagre rations were merely intended to keep the prisoners alive” (“Daily Life” 5). In the morning, they would get tea or coffee, and maybe some watery soup. They were only allowed four slices of potatoes in their soup.
I believe that if schools start to make their lunches healthier, and start taking the UN healthy foods out then students will stop eating school lunch. The food that they feed us already is not in the best of condition. School's have already taken the majority of the UN healthy foods out of school as it is. So to take out anymore food would be ridiculous. over half of the students pack their lunch as it is.
With money hard to come by, they were not selling the fruits of their labor (www.history.http://www.history.com/topics/great-depressioncom/topics/great-depression). Thankfully they had food to eat, but without purchases of their crops, the supplies they were going to need for the next harvest were non-existent. This cycle them trickled down to the starving public. Around the early 1930’s severe drought and devastating wind storms known as the dust bowl rushed into the Great Plains region and caused a wide spread massacre of plants and farms, crippling most food resources (www.history.http://www.history.com/topics/great-depressioncom/topics/great-depression). It is a wonder we ever recovered from the grips of the dust
Every 6th person in America doesn 't have enough food to eat to stay healthy. Everyone knows how people take food as granted, or how much food they waste and even knowing how to help the helpless but don 't. People like me want to help people, so we decided to sell lemonade and raise money to donate canned goods for people in need. About 40% of food in America is thrown away, roughly 20 pounds per person. The amount of food we waste, we alone can stop world hunger all together.
The Stock Market , the Speculative Boom and the way people invest in their money. So many people didn’t realize that it took time to get rich and make money, if most Americans invest in good common stocks and all the dividend to accumulate at the end of twenty years you will have up to $80,000. Overall the Great Depression had a positive and negative effect on the American people although it broke the confidence of the American people and deeply injured agricultural and financial services it also taught people to have better mindset the way they are handling
Human survival is based on everyone’s four basic needs; air, water, food, and shelter. Unfortunately, the need for food has been overlooked and what most people are not aware of is that there are millions of children and adults that do not receive the food that they need every day. The non-profit organization “Feeding America” has helped eliminate hunger in the United States since 1979. First being called “America’s Second Hand Harvest”, they soon became known as “The Nation’s Food Bank” before finally adopting their current name, “Feeding America”, in 2008. Feeding America helps prevent the nationwide problem of hunger with the assistance of people donating and companies who give grants and to feed more than forty-six million hungry citizens
PennLive reports Rita's spokeswoman Ariel Vegotsky words, “never before in the history of Rita's has the chain been impacted by a national food shortage. We are not able to get our egg supplies anymore to supply our 600 stores." Since they can no longer meet their levels of supply and demand they have preferred to eliminate their egg based products and keep their business running with a similar tasting product. The same way Rita’s and previously mentioned H-E-B grocery stores have traded off their consistency for new actions, so has the fast food restaurant Whataburger, that has been reducing serving breakfast hours. Both producer and consumer behavior are happening, while sellers have been changing the way their businesses are run, buyers have been changing the way they
Potato flour is the waste of potato after the starch and alcohol have been extracted; it has no more food value than so much wood.” (227). They believed they were purchasing nutritious meats and feeding their families with foods that will sustain them. These sausages had no nutritional value. They may as well have been eating cardboard.

Finally, we need to fix the rations around the world. In document seven we see a tweet from jessie saying there’s more food in Africa hen there is in Africa. Africa has rations for how much food people get, low ranking people get less food than high ranking people get. This isn’t fair because here are several kids I know who always have leftover food that they throw away. If the government set a worldwide ration per person, we could divide the food
A low intake of vitamins and minerals causes about 2 billion people all over the world to suffer from micronutrient malnutrition (IFPRI, 2014). Nutritional deficiencies result in impaired physical and mental development of humans, loss of productivity, susceptibility to various diseases among others (Lim et al, 2012). They are caused not only by low quantities of food consumed but also by poor dietary diversity; as dietary diversity is a good indicator of broader nutritional status. More diverse diets are associated with lower rates of nutritional problems in many parts of the world (Popkin and Slining, 2013). As a result, to improve nutrition and health, it is important to increase dietary diversity.
