What is childhood hunger?
Over a billion children suffer from childhood hunger ,maybe even the person beside you. Childhood hunger is a big problem all over the world. Alot of children don't have food to eat, so they are hungry. This may happen if their parents don't have money. If children don't have food they could die.
Facts about childhood hunger
About 16.1 billion children don't have food on their table like most of us do. These children need nutrition to survive. They also need nutrition to live a healthy life. If a childs parent does not have a job or money than they may not be able to buy their kids food. Its devistating to know that some people don't get to eat. ("Feeding A Hungry world") (Gritzner1)
The end of this devistating story
It's sad to know that children go through this everyday. There are atleast 2 or 3 people in our school who don't have food to eat. There are children in every school that dont have food to eat so they get as much school lunch as they can. There may even be a teacher in your school that does suffers from this. Childhood hunger is a bad thing I have learned to be grateful for what I have.
