The famine alarm bells are ringing.

After years of seeing the rate of global hunger decline, the number of people facing a hunger crisis dramatically increased in 2021. And the troubling trend is continuing. 

For an official famine to be declared, it actually means thousands of people are already dying. They are starving to death. For many people, an official declaration of famine means it’s too late.

But together, we can work to save lives.

Hunger is increasing at an alarming rate, and the impending famine is not one caused by lack of food.

We know there is enough food in the world to feed every person – so why are people hungry?

Conflict, closed borders, lingering impacts of COVID-19, the climate crisis and soaring food prices have caused a breakdown in food supply chains.

Whether it’s poverty, the inability to grow food because of prolonged droughts or broken systems that don’t allow food to be brought into a community, what we’re dealing with is an issue of access.

With millions of people living so close to the edge, the resources don’t match up to the reality, and eventually, heartbreaking decisions will need to be made by local partners…

Do we feed less to more people, or feed just enough to less people?

We never want to be in a position where those decisions need to be made. That’s why we’re asking for your help – because famine must be avoided at all costs.

Foodgrains Bank works to prevent hunger by providing emergency food access during times of crisis, as well as working to ensure long-term food security so people can be stronger and more resilient when the crises hit.
