Food equals future

Today there’s less food available. The food available is less accessible. The food we have access to is not affordable. And, in many places, the food access is restricted by gender, which carries consequences on women, who tend to be the last ones eating and yet in less proportions during times of crisis. 

Conflicts, climate change, and COVID-19 have aggravated an already existing emergency, putting in danger the future of millions of families and children. There has been a considerable decrease in the European agricultural production. The international commerce has been disturbed, and sanctions have been imposed, thus stopping the flux of food and vital resources all around the world. Without food and fertilizers, stores have gone empty, prices went up, crop productions were threatened, and the food insecurity increased.

Is it possible for us to put an end to world hunger? How CARE responds to the world hunger crisis

CARE has implemented a comprehensive response to this crisis, which covers the entire spectrum of food and nutritional insecurity, from the emergency response and treatment of severe malnutrition, to transitioning to short-term recovery and creating longer-term plans and systems that prepare families to withstand future crises.

Nowadays, saving lives implies: Having immediate supplies of food and cash vouchers, the access to job opportunities, and the prevention of life-threatening malnutrition.

Growing food and resilience: Through more efficient agricultural practices, alternatives to fertilizers and safer food storage, we will ensure there is a next harvest season.

Changing food systems through political advocacy: This covers both working with private sector partners and donors, and the political advocacy with governments to prevent crises from happening again.
