Acute food insecurity is now reaching almost 350 million people

The number of people in the world facing food insecurity has doubled since 2019, according to the World Food Programme. That number is sitting at 345 million people, and the organization says it is partly due to COVID-19, the war in Ukraine, and climate change.

Before the pandemic, 135 million people suffered from food insecurity, and regions of Africa are some of the most affected areas.

Currently, the World Food Programme helps support 13 million people in Africa, but they say their help only covers half a person’s daily needs due to lack of funds.
