Lead the Way on Hunger

One in nine people worldwide do not have enough to eat. Most live in developing countries. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this crisis has become even more severe as families don’t have access to clean water, sanitation, or basic nutrition. Consistent access to sufficient nutritious food is necessary for good physical and mental health, and for honoring the dignity of each person. Catholic Relief Services believes that ending global hunger means responding to immediate hunger emergencies while also preventing hunger—through sustainable development that addresses the root causes of poverty.

That’s why CRS works to care for the whole person, family, community and the Earth in addressing systemic poverty. But as escalating natural disasters, war and health crises wreak havoc on food sources, water and livelihoods, we can—and must—do more.
