There is still enough food on the planet to feed everyone, yet one billion do not have access to sufficient and go to bed hungry every night. Obesity and diabetes grow, and 40 per cent of school going children in South Africa are severely malnourished. It is said that, every day, so many children die due to lack of food; they would fill seven jumbo jets. Something is seriously wrong with this picture and it is obvious that we need to address this. This is what World Food Day and the International Day for Eradicating Poverty, on 16 and 17 October respectively, focus attention on.
