“On May 28, groups around the world will come together to honor World Hunger Day … Experts agree that tackling malnutrition is not only the right thing to do, but it also makes economic sense. … So what can we do reduce hunger and malnutrition? We need to focus on bottom-up solutions that partner with communities who, with the right tools and training, lead the charge. … 2. We need to reduce gender inequality which perpetuates the cycle of malnutrition. … 3. We need to work across sectors. … When we focus on people, when we work together, when we let communities lead, we can sustainably end hunger, for good” (5/26).
