Sustainability is more than “going green”
A Perfect Storm
                                     Increasing population

    Rising food prices

                         Using food for fuel
    There is enough food in the world to
adequately feed every man, woman, and child.

                       Root causes of hunger lie in:

                       • Inequitable distribution of

                       •Lack of access to education

                       •Lack of access to basic resources

                       •Conflict and war

                       •Trade policies

                       •Ethnic and religious discrimination
Auburn University and the World Food Programme

          Auburn University is privileged to have been selected as the first
          university in the world to partner with the United Nations World
          Food Programme in a student-driven “War on Hunger” campaign.
1 billion people around the world experience chronic hunger.

                               1.2 billion people live on less than $1 a day.

      Every six seconds another child dies from hunger.

   Seven out of ten of the world’s hungry are women or girls.

                           Hunger & malnutrition kill more people per year
                           than AIDS, Malaria, and TB combined.
United Nations World Food Programme (WFP)
 is the World’s Largest Humanitarian Agency
         – Budget of $ 6 billion in 2008

                        on average, WFP feeds more than
                        100 million people in 74 countries
