Quotes of world Hunger Day
“If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.” Mother Teresa

“Close to a billion people – one-eighth of the world’s population – still live in hunger. Each year 2 million children die from malnutrition. This is happening at a time when doctors in Britain are warning of the spread of obesity. We are eating too much while others starve.” Jonathan Sacks
“We know that a peaceful world cannot long exist, one-third rich and two-thirds hungry.” Jimmy Carter
