Zero Hunger in Jeopardy: What We Can Do to Bring Hunger to an End

Herbalife Nutrition discusses global hunger and steps we can take to reduce hunger
Blog

One of our most basic human needs is to feel safe and secure. Nearly three billion individuals can not afford a healthy diet and 1 in 10 individuals are experiencing severe food insecurity. We are experiencing a threat to our food security through the impact of decreasing access to nutritious food. After decades of steady decline, world hunger has slowly been on the rise since 2015. Today, two billion people worldwide do not have regular access to sufficient, nutritious food, according to the United Nation’s State of Food Insecurity 2020 (SOFI) report.

How Partnerships Can Respond to Rising Food Insecurity

Blog

The number of people suffering from food insecurity continues to rise due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is especially true for households with young children. In fact, current research shows that more than 17 percent of children in the United States now lack sufficient food. Feed the Children is working closely with community organizations, individual donors, and companies like Herbalife Nutrition to help ensure vulnerable families and communities don’t go hungry.

The Path to Zero Hunger Includes Empowering Women

Empowering Women Can Reduce Global Hunger
Blog

Women make up 60% of the 821 million people who are food insecure globally. The reasons why women suffer more acutely from hunger are rooted in several complex and often interwoven issues, including culture, gender inequity, access to resources, education and more.

By focusing on solutions that include gender equity and women empowerment, greater impact can be made to reduce malnutrition, food insecurity and hunger. By ensuring women have access to critical resources, global rates of hunger can be significantly reduced by up to 150 million people.

Multimedia with summary

Many people around the world rely on rice as a staple food. But rice can leave a lot to be desired as a complete food – it contains very little in the way of essential vitamins and minerals, including iron. This lack of nutrients contributes to high rates of anemia and children who are underweight and behind in their physical development.

Today, more than 2 billion people in the world are overweight or obese and 800 million are malnourished. Malnutrition, in every form, presents significant threats to human health.

Children are particularly affected by malnutrition. In 2016, over 41 million under the age of 5 and over 340 million children and adolescents aged 5-19 were overweight or obese. During the last 3 decades the number of overweight children has doubled among 2 to 5 year old children.

Collaborating to Fight Childhood Malnutrition and Meet UN Sustainability Development Goal

An Interview with Michelle Nunn, CEO of CARE USA
Summary: 

In September 2015, countries convened at a historical UN General Assembly to launch the new 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. Over the next 14 years, these 17 goals (encompassing 169 targets) will mobilize efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is left behind. For these goals to be reached, everyone has to partner together to do their part: governments, private sector, NGOs, and civil society.

Amway had a voice in helping shape the goals and targets for ending hunger and eliminating malnutrition in all its forms, but that was the simple step. That voice was possible because of years of actions in using our core competencies in nutrition science and expertise to address a critical issue like childhood malnutrition.

One year after the announcement of these Sustainable Development Goals, Amway asked Michelle Nunn, president and CEO of CARE USA (one of our global partners) to reflect on the significance of these goals, as well as our unique and strong partnership.
