This shows that families with low income do not receive enough nutrition and due to low income and lack of education, under these conditions they are unable to provide a proper diet and accept food from food banks. Also, another social statue that plays an important role is unemployment because since some people are not financially stable this causes them to have difficulty providing for their families and end up starving and face critical health conditions in their lifetime, this is one reason food banks are presented as they help provide such families
Still around the world there are shortages of food in areas where food is difficult to grow. Africa has climate that is difficult to grow enough food for the needs of the people. Transporting the food is difficult since healthy foods can spoil. Climate and rainfall can make growing good foods a problem. So location and population can contribute to hunger globally.
The limited accessibility of fresh foods and excess of fast food restaurants in low-income areas are a catalyst to the obesity epidemic. The obesity epidemic is rising by a swift rate; there are two contributing factors to this. The first factor is that companies are confusing consumers on what is healthy to eat. The other factor is that poor people do not have access to healthy places to eat and end up eating affordable unhealthy food, which would be fast food. The poor people who live in food deserts end up not having many options, and the people that know what it is detrimental do not care to stop eating.
In fact, most hungry people live in countries that have excess in food. Therefore, increasing food production will not solve world hunger. Food is readily available to those who can afford it, which is why solving the poverty problem is part of the answer to the world hunger problem (Shah, Anup). Accordingly, we have to ask ourselves what is the main cause of poverty around the world? As Anup Shah points out, poverty around the world is a consequence, mainly due to international trade and economic policies.
This in turn results in a large amount of malnourishment among the impoverished people of India. Food insecurity is mainly due to lack of advance in agricultural productivity owing to inadequate means and marketplaces needed to obtain necessary agricultural stability. India has seen impressive economic growth in recent years, but the country still struggles with extensive hunger and poverty. India’s food policy provide farmers with more eminent and more consistent prices for their crops than they would receive in the private market, and to sell food grains to the poor at lower costs than they would pay at the private open marketplaces. In spite of surplus food-grains, and stock, it is also a reality that a huge number of people do not have adequate money to buy food for their family.
Since the farmers are not able to grow enough food for everyone, the prices of the grown foods are soaring, which is leading to people who could not afford food before and are under or near the poverty line starve ("Hunger, Poverty Rates in Egypt up Sharply over past Three Years”). Starvation is having a direct impact on the health of both the young and adults. The people of Egypt are starving and need emergency help. Egypt’s government needs to take a stand and provide their people with the necessary resources they need to survive or we might have to witness the future of Egypt not being fully developed and not being able live a normal life due to both mental and physical defects (Khatab, Khalid). Egypt did try to resolve the problem with hunger by giving poor families ration cards so families can buy food.
With food prices constantly rising and falling, it is hard for poor people to access nutritious food consistently. When nutritious food prices rise too high, consumers shift to less nutritious, cheaper foods. This may lead to nutrient deficiency and malnutrition if it goes on for long enough
It shows that a lot of Americans really depend of these places for food. The number shouldn’t be that high. These places aren’t healthy for the body... ... middle of paper ... ...e and to make sure that doesn’t happen too. One big thing that goes along with obesity is fast food industries. Fast food is everywhere and is hard to say no to.
It is obvious that this is not being accomplished right now. Around 795 million people do not have enough food to be counted as secure. The connection of this issue to poverty is obvious. The way the food system is set up is a large complicated issue that is negatively affecting the ability to feed the impoverished population in the world. The food supply/demand relationship is broken and causing a disconnect from the food being supplied and the ability to get this food to the people who need it.
When the land is degraded, it might not be useful for cropping. This alone has cause some states in Nigeria that depends on agriculture get lower revenue. Nothing only that, also, hunger is growing among the over populated Nigerians. Right now, the country is depending on importation of foods to feed the nation. However, this has led to the hike of food prices in the country.
