Hunger & Starvation Myth #10: 

Most hunger related deaths occur during famines.

 

The Hunger Project focuses on chronic, persistent hunger as distinct from the famine emergencies that make the news. Less than 10 percent of those who die from hunger die because of famine.

Chronic, persistent hunger is not due merely to lack of food. It occurs when people lack opportunity to earn enough money, to be educated and gain skills, to meet basic health needs and have a voice in the decisions that affect their community.
