Hunger and Starvation

Hunger is the First World Problem.
Hunger is a Crime. 

Hence, it is a moral obligation for educators –especially parents and teachers– to address this crime and its causes.

What other word but crime can be used in a world that has sufficient levels of production, resources and know-how available to put an end to it?, but where about 100,000-150,000 people die of starvation and hunger-related causes every day around the world, half of these being children.

World hunger is the most dramatic symptom of world impoverishment. If efforts and energies to solve the problem are only directed at providing food, or improving food production or distribution, then the structural root causes that create hunger and impoverishment will still remain. Why? Because political causes require political solutions.
