Education versus Hunger

“A hungry man can’t see right or wrong. He just sees food.”
– Pearl S. Buck
“When people were hungry, Jesus didn’t say, “Now is that political, or social?” He said, “I feed you.” Because the good news to a hungry person is bread.”
– Desmond Tutu
“So you begin…I began. I picked up one person — Maybe if I didn’t pick up that one person I wouldn’t have picked up 42,000. Just begin…one, one, one.” 
– Mother Teresa
I can’t think of any issue that is more important than working to see that no schoolchild in this world goes hungry.
 Feeding a child at school is such a simple thing – but it works miracles. 
School feeding not only fills stomachs, but has a proven track record of boosting enrollment, attendance and academic performance. For just pennies a day per child, this program changes lives – and ultimately can impact the futures of poor countries around the world in a profound way.

If you want to eliminate hunger, everybody has to be involved
Bono
Hunger makes a thief of any man.”
Pearl S. Buck  
School feeding is a great tool to encourage education and provide food aid to children born into extremely impoverished situations. The kids in school being fed by WFP are empowered by their school meal to learn and better their lives!”
Lauren Bush 
To think that one child would go to bed hungry somewhere in this country is heartbreaking… to know how many do is virtually incomprehensible. This is not only a problem that exists in the far reaches of the globe. It happens right here in our own backyard. Together, as concerned citizens, we must do more to make sure every child’s needs are met.
— Katie Couric
Just because a child’s parents are poor or uneducated is no reason to deprive the child of basic human rights to health care, education and proper nutrition.
Marian Wright Edelman
Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.
Mohandas K. Gandhi
There’s enough on this planet for everyone’s needs but not for everyone’s greed.
~ Mohandas Gandhi
“It’s amazing how many people are being fed because of this crazy little thing we started. We’re feeding millions and it is not costing anyone anything.”
John van Hengel, “Father of Foodbanking”
It’s appalling that there should be hunger anywhere, but particularly in a country like America, where there is also such great wealth.
— Elizabeth Hurley, actress
Twelve million children in the United States face hunger every day. Bringing an end to this terrible situation is a passion I share with my friends in the entertainment industry. Together we can end hunger.
— Kathy Ireland, supermodel
Most Americans think of hunger as a problem affecting only places like India, Africa or South America. But it is a tragic reality that our country has millions of children who are suffering from lack of food. We must all work together to save our country from this problem.
— Beverly Johnson, supermodel
Hunger is a people-made phenomenon, so the central issue is power: the power of those who make the decisions about what is grown and who, or what, it’s grown for.
Frances Moore Lappe
The day hunger disappears, the world will see the greatest spiritual explosion humanity has ever seen.
— Federico Garcia Lorca

The people are hungry: It is because those in authority eat up too much in taxes.
— Lao Tzu 
I didn’t used to care about living a long time. Not that I wasn’t enjoying life, but I never sat around asking how I’d get to be 100, you know. But now I want to live long enough to see every school child in the world getting a good, nutritious lunch every day.
George McGovern
The world produces enough food to feed the entire population. It’s a travesty that anyone should go hungry anywhere.
— Donnie Osmond
I went to bed hungry many nights as a child. It was a Dream that dressed me up when I was ragged, and it was a Dream that filled me up when I was hungry. Now it’s my Dream to see that no child in this world ever goes hungry, certainly not here in America, the most bountiful country in the world. We can do better…we must!
Dolly Parton 
We say the United States is a rich country, but how can we be rich when millions of poor American children go to bed hungry?
— Alexandra Paul, actress
We are already producing enough food to feed the world. We already have technology in place that allows us to produce more than we can find a market for.
Jeremy Rifkin
Childhood hunger in America is as much a paradox as it is a tragedy. Why, in the wealthiest country in the world, should hunger darken the lives and dreams of 12 million children and their families? I believe that, when Americans learn the facts and understand how their involvement can make a difference, banishing childhood hunger will be a national, local and personal priority.
Martin Sheen
When a poor person dies of hunger, it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her. It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what he or she needed
Mother Teresa
“Every new mother wonders, ‘what will I pass on to my child’? Hunger is one inheritance no mother wants to give her child, yet millions of poor women have for generations. Help the World Food Programme break this cycle. No child should inherit hunger.”
Rachel Weisz
