Eat to Live, Do not live to eat! Food belongs to society, not just to us!

By Shreyas M Koti

  Food is an essential part of living. Among all human activities eating undoubtedly has the greatest effect on health! After breathing, eating is what we do most frequently during a lifetime.

According to 2010 estimate by FAO, out of 7 billion people in the world approximately, there are 925 million hungry people in the world, 13.1 percent, or almost 1 in 7 people are hungry. 


  • This year (2011) it has already crossed 1 billion. And not shockingly India has the highest number of hungry people on the earth.
  • The number of hungry people in India has increased by 65 million — more than the population of France — because economic development, excluded the rural poor, and welfare programs failed to reach them.
  • Research forecasts that average international prices of key staples, such as maize, will increase by between 120 and 180 per cent by 2030, with up to half of this increase due to climate change and wastage of food. 
  • The world’s poorest people, who spend up to 80 per cent of their income on food, will be hit hardest.

So there’s a lot how each and everyone can make a difference. There are a billion online people today (including you) who can make this difference. A billion for a billion!! High time!!
A lot of people, websites and companies are working towards this cause. One such very good initiative taken by an Organistaion Which gives you simple and easy ways to address the issue.
“Food for thought is no substitute for the real thing”
“If we can conquer space, we can conquer childhood hunger”
“Those who wish for a more peaceful, just and 
sustainable world, are helping in making, 
ending world hunger a major priority.
Together we can end hunger.”
Let’s Join Hands…
