TRENDS

Poor nutrition causes 45% of deaths in kids under five each year.

The depth of the food deficit (in kilocalories per person per day) remains very serious in many parts of the world.

A result of poor diets over long periods is a retardation of growth – the height of children is too small for their age. This is referred to as stunted growth. Children with stunted growth are at greater risk for illness and death.

 

GOOD PRACTICES


Feeding Forward is an online platform that connects businesses with excess food to people in need. Since its launch in 2013, Feeding Forward has recovered more than 780,000 pounds of food, feeding over 570,000 people, and diverted over 3.42 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions from landfills.
