For you and me, it may be unimaginable to live without food; yet, one out of seven people in this world lives without food. Many of these people are from India as research indicates that close to one-third of the world's hungry live in India. In fact, you may be shocked to learn that 7,000 people die of hunger in India every day.

Of those who do get food to eat, many don't get enough. And many more have to settle for food that lacks the minimum nutrition needed to make a balanced diet for good health... leading to severe cases of malnutrition, especially in children. So, when it comes to food, India (and the world) falls drastically short of providing quantity and quality food to everyone.

Poverty is the sole cause for this food problem. And, in India, where close to 40% of the population lives below the poverty line, this problem is likely to remain with us for a long time.

However, the problem of food and nutrition is not irresolvable; especially if we all come together to take corrective action. Action, that focuses directly on food production (or agriculture) and nutrition... and on managing population growths, illiteracy, negative impacts of the caste system, and India's agricultural and economic policies. It can be done. It's not too late to do so.
