Our Goal

 OUR GOAL

 Hunger Plus, Inc. assists those who wish to join the fight to reduce hunger and reach the World Food Summit goal by 2015.  Current statistics  indicate that the world is falling behind  in achieving this worthwhile goal.  And many recent national disasters have made this goal elusive.  Earthquakes, flooding, tornadoes, hurricanes, volcanic eruptions, disease epidemics, severe drought and war are all contributing factors

Problems of chronic and communicable diseases are becoming more and more prevalent in many countries.   Improper and insufficient diets contribute to these conditions and strain health services in many countries.  Improved diets will reduce suffering and  reduce  pressure on health services.    

Natural disasters (droughts, earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, etc.) are responsible for some of the world’s  hunger.  These disasters can be addressed with the direct supply of food.  The same is true of hunger resulting from conflicts.  Chronic hunger must be addressed with more complicated long term solutions to break the cycle of poverty, malnutrition and ultimately hunger.
