North Central College will host an informal talk and discussion on global hunger Jan. 20 with Paul Macek, senior director of food security and livelihoods at World Vision.
According to World Vision, some 925 million people in the world—or one in seven people—don’t eat enough to be healthy. Hunger is number one on the list of the world’s top 10 health risks in 2012. It kills more people every year than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.
