In 2005, Peter Menzel published Hungry Planet which featurerd a photographic study of families from around the world, revealing what people eat during the course of one week. The photo above shows the Revis family from North Carolina. View more from the Time photo galleries of “What the World Eats”.
April is National Food Month, but not everyone is blessed to have enough food. In fact, according to Bread for the World, 854 million people in the world go hungry and in developing countries over 9 million children die every year from hunger and malnutrition.
But there is something we all can do to help.
Websites such as FreeRice, FreeFlour and Helpuu all allow you to help end hunger at no cost. The Hunger Site also lists a number of ways to help free of charge...people learn the meaning of tithe, this is a way to really give back.
