World Hunger Relief Walk 2013

There are nearly 1 billion hungry people around the world today. Hunger and malnutrition are the number one risk to health worldwide — greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. Among the key causes of hunger are natural disasters, conflict, poverty, poor agricultural infrastructure and over-exploitation of the environment. Recently, financial and economic crises have pushed more people-into-hunger.

In the past four years, World Hunger Relief has raised nearly $85 million for WFP and other hunger relief organizations and is helping to provide over 350 million meals, saving the lives of millions of people in remote corners of the world.
