Donate food, why not?

Keep your stomach happy and your heart peaceful. Find out how and where you can give to a food charity

We live in a developing and technological world in which we have all the means to end hunger. However, these supplies aren't rightly divided. Many people are starving and don't have the bare minimum to survive. Additionally, in a world where few have much and many have little, there are countries where food wastefulness and hunger coexist. To help counter this problem, think about contributing to a food bank or charity.

Donate food

Throughout the year, people are in need of food and water. Eradicating poverty and hunger is a Millennium Development Goal that was renewed in 2015. A big part of the world’s population survives on less than $1.25 a day, which dropped 14 percent in the last year. That is more than 800 million people living in extreme poverty, and some of those individuals are living in our country, near us, in our city, or even on our street.

What can we do about this? How can we donate food?

Every country has their own problems, but hunger plagues the world. Not everyone has the money to buy food. We can help these individuals by donating food.

There are food banks and centers such as soup kitchens, which is an emergency food program, that give food to people in need. You also have the option to do volunteer work for these centers.

Where can I make this kind of donation?
