Global hunger

Each year, American farmers help feed many millions of hungry people in nearly 100 nations. Even so, there were more than 800,000 people, or about 10.7% of the world’s population, who were chronically undernourished in 2016. More than 3.1 million children die each year from malnutrition, while many others suffer the effects of permanently-impaired physical and cognitive problems that result from growing up without enough to eat. Many hungry people live in countries with high levels of debt, few exports and little ability to help their citizens. Yemen, Chad, East Timor, Madagascar, Mozambique, Liberia, Haiti and Sierra Leone are all countries that struggle to feed their citizens.

Proposed Legislation: H.R.1567 - Global Food Security Act of 2015 (114th Congress 2015-2016)
Prospective Sponsor: Rep. Christopher Smith (NJ)
