we face, both at home and internationally, are increasingly
global. Population, environment, illegal immigration, disease,
war and political instability – increasingly these are issues
that ignore borders and affect us all. As Willie Brandt once
said, "As long as hunger exists, peace cannot prevail."
The Hunger Project is
committed to ending world hunger as an expression of global
citizenship, global partnership and global responsibility. We
consider that hunger exists not as a local or national problem,
but as a global problem. All of us have a responsibility to
create a world where all people have the chance to lead lives
free from hunger.
While The Hunger Project
focuses on the most severe forms of hunger, which occur
primarily in South Asia and Africa, many innovative groups
addressing domestic hunger have "spun off" from The Hunger
Project – organizations created by Hunger Project supporters,
and utilizing our principles and approach.
