Happy World Hunger Action Month!
By Chessney Barrick, Stop Hunger Now


October is World Hunger Action Month, when Stop Hunger Now aims to raise public awareness of world hunger. On this World Food Day, October 16, Stop Hunger Now and partner organizations such as the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) wish to broaden understanding of the problems and solutions that can end hunger.


Around the world, more than 842 million people lack adequate food and more than 25,000 die each day from hunger-related illnesses. During the 2013 World Hunger Action Month thousands of Stop Hunger Now volunteers will package more than 4 million meals at about 100 events in the United States, South Africa, Malaysia and Italy. Large-scale 100,000-meal packaging events are taking place in cities such as  Atlanta, Houston, Jacksonville, Miami, Philadelphia, and Memphis. Last year, volunteers around the world packaged more than 2.3 million Stop Hunger Now meals during October.
