Hunger is on the rise for the first time in a generation.

783 Million People

are facing chronic hunger or don’t know where their next meal is coming from.

1 in 4 Countries

contains populations experiencing severe hunger.

45 Million Children

globally are suffering from wasting, a severe and deadly form of malnutrition.

Disruptions from violent conflict, rising food costs, and extreme weather events drive more and more families to hunger every day.

Addressing hunger means tackling these root causes with the proven tools we know work. That's why World Vision's food programs invest in building resilient local farms and equipping farmers with improved farming techniques that increase crop yield and resist drought. We need a Farm Bill that also invests in long-term solutions to hunger, not just treat the symptoms.
