Mojo Monday ~ Raise Your Voice

Standard

‎”Half the world’s population does not receive enough food to eat. 10-20 million die every year of hunger and its effects. The Institute for Food and Development Policy reports that, “Forty thousand children starve to death on this planet every day,” or one child every two seconds.

Of all the agricultural land in the U.S., nearly 80 percent is used in some way to raise animals—that’s roughly half of the total land mass of the U.S. More than 260 million acres of U.S. forest have been cleared to create cropland to grow grain to feed farmed animals.

The world’s cattle alone consume a quantity of food equal to the caloric needs of 8.7 billion people—more than the entire human population on Earth. About 20 percent of the world’s population, or 1.4 billion people, could be fed with the grain and soybeans fed to U.S. cattle alone.”


Join a walk, or if you live too far away to participate in person, donate to one.

Fight hunger with every choice you make and every step you take:
