When there’s enough food in the world to feed everyone, why are 3 million children dying from malnutrition each year?
Global Citizens have been working hard to ensure leaders of the Group of 7 (also known as the G7) countries (which includes Canada, Italy, France, Germany, UK, USA, Japan and also the EU) deliver their ambitious target to lift 500 million people out of hunger and malnutrition by 2030. As the leaders meet again in Italy on March 20 to discuss plans for the G7 summit in May, we need to keep the pressure on and make sure they prioritize food and nutrition.
Ending malnutrition will require investments in healthcare, education, women’s empowerment, clean water and sanitation and other important areas. Malnourished children in some of the world’s poorest countries need these investments to save their lives.
We hope the G7 won’t forget this when they make a plan and invest money to end hunger and malnutrition for all.
G7 representatives meet in Italy again next month, so we must make sure they hear our call before they sit down at the table.
Tell G7 leaders that ending hunger and malnutrition will require #MoreThanFood
