Background on World Hunger

World hunger is a huge problem in our world, and can happen anywhere. 13.5 of our population is hungry, which is around 805 million people. Asia is the continent with the most hungry people. Sub-Saharan Africa is the country with the highest prevalence on hunger, one in every four people are undernourished. Poverty is the main advocator to this issue.

Why it's Important and How to Help

Imagine if you didn't know when your next meal would come. Over 13.5% of our world wonders that every day. That means one in nine people do not get enough food to be healthy and lead an active life. That might seem like a low percent, but it's actually a lot. The number of people is around 805 million people. World hunger is killing 3.1 million children a day, which is 8,500 a day, and around every ten seconds a child dies from hunger related diseases. World hunger should be stopped, so try what you can to help. It is important to help because a small donation can go a long way. All you have to do is, do some research online, and donate to a cause. On the qr code below you can donate money daily, or you can join the organization if you want to be more involved.

Stop Hunger Now Organization

Donating in Coppell

All of the Coppell Independent School Districts take part in donating cans to a food pantry. Each school collects cans and donates them. At Coppell Middle School North the organization is called Trick or Treat so Kids and Eat. Each classroom collects cans, and whatever class wins gets a pizza party. Every school can end up collecting many cans.
