In a recent article released by the World Food Programme (WFP), a list of 10 of the most important world hunger facts was developed. The list is fascinating, as it takes a close look at the issue of world hunger as we go into this new year.
A notable point from the article is the effect world hunger has on children—the most vulnerable of the population. In developing countries, much like those that the World Soy Foundation works in, one in four children are stunted, unable to reach their physical and mental potential, due to inadequate nutrition. Research shows that the first 1,000 days of a child’s life is the most critical time period for an appropriate, nourishing diet.
The World Soy Foundation recognizes this need, and works to address it by helping infants, toddlers and pregnant women—bringing the power of protein-packed soy into their diets. By working with schools, cooking and administrative staff, and various institutions, the foundation is helping to reduce malnutrition across the globe.
But, we need your help to continue furthering our work! Consider donating to the Acre Challenge by simply calculating the value of an acre of soybeans in your operation (yield multiplied by price) and give the gift of protein today!
