Feeding the World's Hungry: Fostering an efficient and responsive food access pipeline

Global food security remains one of the paramount concerns of our time. One-sixth of the world’s population faces hunger, poverty, and a day-to-day struggle for survival. Every year, hunger and malnutrition are responsible for more than half of all child deaths worldwide—approximately 6 million children under the age of 5. And the cost of hunger from medical expenses lost productivity, and lower educational attainment is estimated at
$500 billion to $1 trillion over a generation’s lifetime.
