Where Hunger Exists

There are 795 million chronically hungry people in the world. Where do they live?

*Why don't these numbers add up to 795? Because the small remaining amount of hungry people live in the developed world - in countries like Canada and the U.S.

The story behind the numbers

  • Asia has the highest number of hungry people ... but also has the biggest population
  • Sub-Saharan Africa has the highest percentage of hungry people.
  • There are over 200 million fewer hungry people in developing countries today than there were in the early 1900s
