Less than a year ago, the number of hungry people in the world topped 1 billion for the first time in history. It now appears all but certain that the hunger target associated with Millennium Development Goal no. 1 – reduction of hunger by half by 2015 – will not be met.
If the world continues at the current pace of hunger reduction, we will see hundreds of millions of needless deaths and incalculable suffering. Your signature, along with thousands of others from across the globe, will be presented to world leaders. You can learn more about the movement by visiting 1Billion Hungry Project.
