“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread” – Charles Dickens, Oliver Twist World hunger is one of the biggest problems faced in this world today. About 24,000 people die every day, and most of these deaths are faced by children under five. Even though there is a lot of food in the world, some people in the world can’t access these foods because of poverty. About 1/10 of the world population suffer from chronic hunger every year. Because of the hunger problem, the majority of people suffer from blindness, anemia, malnutrition related problems and other diseases because they are not getting enough diet.
This percentage causes hunger, suffering and death. According to the NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council), of the total food that is produced in the United States, forty percent is thrown away each year. Food is not being properly distributed nor consumed, and the least lucky are paying for it with their lives. There are many fields and areas involved in food production and responsible for big amounts of food waste, but a big part of this problem occurs at our houses while we live our daily life. There are three major reasons why people throw food away; they do not like it, they have had enough, and/or they think the food expired because a label tells them so.

Secondly, the development of the concept of human rights will be discussed, as a way to show the evolving nature of the social human groups around the world. Thirdly the connection between morality, values and human rights will be discussed. Then the concept of universal morals will be discussed, as this is the primary concept that applied to the idea of human rights being universal.
