Today, October 16th, is World Food Day. It is a day designated for increasing awareness, understanding and year-round action to alleviate hunger.

A report released on Wednesday by the United Nations says that the global economic crises has left over 1 billion people malnourished.

According to CNN Health, the number of hungry increased as governments pumped resources into stabilizing financial markets instead of agriculture and food distribution.
