Below is an essay on "World Hunger" from Anti Essays, your source for research papers, essays, and term paper examples.

World hunger is the worst problem in the world today. My goal today, is to bring to your knowledge the facts surrounding world hunger and what you can do to help. Let’s start by defining world Hunger. Hunger is a term which has three meanings according Oxford English Dictionary (1971) “1.the uneasy or painful sensation caused by want of food; craving appetite. Also the exhausted condition caused by wants of food 2.the want or scarcity of food in a country 3.a strong desire or craving.” World hunger is defined by the 2nd definition on a world scale. I think that world hunger is an unfair problem in the world and needs to be solved. Just because people have fewer opportunities than me does not mean they can suffer hunger. In this paper I will list statistics, other information surrounding world hunger and ways you can help so the biggest problem in the world can be solved.
In 2010 United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimated the number of people hungry in the world. The numbers were: 578 million in Asia and the Pacific, 39 million in Sub-Saharan Africa, 53 million in Latin America and the Caribbean, 37 million in the Near East and North Africa and 19 million in developed countries. That is a total of 925 million people in the world. World Food Program put it in a different statistic that puts a light on just how big the problem is. They said that 1 in 7 people in the world are hungry. That is why I care about world hunger. 1 in 7 is hungry because they have fewer opportunities than me, my parents and the people around me. In the world 1 in 7 is starving just because. I think 1 in 7 is too big a number and we need to change that. 13.1 percent of the world is in need and there is no one with an organization big enough or has enough supplies and money to fix this huge problem. Not to say there are fantastic organizations out there that to a lot of service, but we need something more.
A little more on hunger and how big a problem we really have....
