I love this question. I won't presume to answer for Jesus, but I would like to give my opinion: Matthew 25:34-40 makes it pretty clear that when we do things like feed the hungry and clothe the poor, we're doing it for Jesus. Leaders of the Church won't like what I have to say BUT: when people, e…specially Christians and the Church, neglect to do all they can for the poor (including providing food and clothing to those they see in need), then they are, in essence, neglecting Jesus. I'll never forget one Christmas season when my children and I didn't have enough to eat. I called quite a few churches in my area looking for help. I received several various answers: "I'm sorry. We just don't have the funds." (No funds? You mean to tell me that you built that big, beautiful addition to your building for free?) and one church receptionist actually said, "I'm sorry. We don't do that." (Don't do that? Don't feed the hungry? Don't dip into your collection plates and give to the poor in your community?) Needless to say, I hung up the phone feeling sad and dejected. And I thought to myself, What if I weren't a Christian? What if I didn't have my faith in Jesus to help me persevere during these trying times? If I didn't already personally know Jesus, how would I have taken these rejections? What would a non-believer's reaction be? The Church must take into consideration that they are not only an example of Jesus, they are a servant of Jesus. If the Church doesn't feed the poor, who will? Let me just say here that there are plenty of good, loving Christian ministries and churches that DO feed the poor, clothe the naked and house the homeless. They are wonderful ministries and I praise God for them. And when some of these ministries go on TV and ask for financial support from fellow Christians, they sometimes get judged for being greedy or whatever. If these ministries can't expect financial (or other) donations from God's people, who will provide? The Church and those who profess to be Christians must do all they can to help the poor. When they do so, they are serving Jesus. ( Full Answer )
Exhort his followers to feed the hungry as he did when he was alive. He would participate as well as when he fed the multitudes. Jesus may well also deal with the underlying causes of hunger, in many cases the greed in men's hearts, selfishness, and lack of compassion.
Ethanol is being made out of crop (food plants) for use as a biofuel (an alternative to fossil fuel for cars). While this is a good thing for the planet because the carbon from biofuels is not adding to the carbon load in our atmosphere, using crops for biofuel manufacture means that some of the w…ord's food is not available for people to eat. This seems to be causing food prices to rise and will exacerbate food shortages in times when the word has experienced a few years of poor harvests. Obviously the more that agricultural land is used for biofuel growth , there will come a point when it will cause world hunger directly. ( Full Answer )
because some people can't afford and the richer people take all the money. Answer 2: Of the resources we need, food is a major limiting resource. If there were overall more food, there would end up being more people, and/or people would consume more, and thus people would still be hungry. It is… a balance, where hunger can not be eliminated until it is no longer a limiting resource on our population, and other factors such as land or shelter are the major limiting factors to human population. Secondly, the distribution of food moves not according to need, but capital, whether it be money, resources, or human intention. Thirdly, world hunger is not made a large concern among most people. There is not a concerted effort to end it, because to do so would offer more work and little benefit to ourselves. ( Full Answer )
Selfish people. Fat people. Wasters. Many countries in Africa have almost no food because of the dry, arid climate and because of famine,disease,war and natural disasters. There being just not enough food in the world or countries not donating food to help developing countries.
The food side of poverty not to much because we actually have enough food to go around the whole world but it doesn't get to the places in need but the money to re-build homes would be a lot.

World hunger is one of the major concerns caused by the rapid population growth can you give me one or two solutions to help solve this problem?
Stop the population growth. The Chinese Government is the only country that has seriously attempted this by trying to limit children to one per family. . Grow more crops. .

It was not such a big deal because people didn't care or were starving themselves. For example in Africa there was no widespread hunger because colonial rule ironically maintained stable governments which could feed their own peoples.
because world hungar is bad is con and a pro is that their not eating the fod we have.
you can help the earth by recycle or....... you could stop wasting food and give people who need food some help (at a charity or etc.), you could do this maybe like 1-2 times a week/month/year no matter what, it will help end this
one organizatoin is dare to care they help out a lot with all the money and help those kids or people that need the food from the hunger

World hunger is a term that basically means the quotient of hunger over the world. So world hunger exists all over the world... HUNGER, however, does exist everywhere, but mainly in less developed countries. And, also some countries include, Africa, Haiti, and most countries i say in Africa becau…se their aren't a developed country and are struggling with other political reasons such as education and poverty.

Given the sheer numbers of people living in situations of extreme poverty - an estimated 925 million people were chronically hungry in 2010 - many often assume that the cost of ending world hunger is astronomical and out of our reach. This is, fortunately, not the case. COST Less than 1% of gross na…tional income from all rich countries, 0.7% to be precise, would be enough to end poverty forever. In the US, that amounts to $91 billion per year. That may seem like an endless amount of money, but compare that to the Department of Defense Budget for 2010: $663.8 billion, an increase of $2 billion from last year. The US has the money to pay for an increase in foreign aid money, but without the political and public resolve it will not happen. The UN estimates that the cost of ending world hunger by achieving the Millennium Development goals would be $143 billion in 2010, which would be spread out among the nations of the world. Due to low levels of aid spent by rich nations across the world, with only five nations reaching or going over the 0.7% goal, the cost of ending world hunger and achieving the Millennium Development goals has not yet been met. If all nations were to commit fully and spend the 0.7% of their gross national income on aid, millions could be set on the path of raising themselves out of global poverty sustainably and permanently. The UN Millennium Villages project offers a good example of the end result of this sort of funding. Designed as a development program focusing on building stability from the local level to the national level, the villages aim to apply the success felt on a smaller community level to district-wide and national levels, allowing local solutions to be implemented in similar situations as well as identify specific national policies that need to be targeted for sustained development. WHAT IT PAYS FOR Using the Millennium Villages project model, a breakdown of what specific regions will receive the aid can give a picture of where investment will occur on a global level. The majority of funding (40%) goes towards health, not surprising considering the high costs associated with drugs and implementation of health programs. The other 60% of funding is fairly evenly consistently split between other community needs: infrastructure (including electricity, roads, sanitation), nutrition, water, agriculture (including training to utilize new breakthroughs in agricultural technology and strategy), community, education, and environment. In all of these cases, the majority of these costs associated with ending world hunger pay for infrastructural or other overall changes that will allow for sustained economic and community growth. As the saying goes, give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day, but teach him how to fish and he'll eat for life. These solutions are not quick fixes, and will not result in immediate dramatic results, but over time and in a very fundamental way will add up and result in the ending of world hunger. The precise solutions that work for the Millennium Villages in Africa of course cannot always translate to all regions, the problems felt in Africa differ greatly from those felt in Oceania. However, the success in these villages show that targeted solutions do work, and offer general examples from which other efforts may be aware of and avoid general difficulties. The cost of ending world hunger is not as high as may be imagined, and the outcomes are endless in terms of the benefits for the regions and the world.

War is a political cause for hunger. War slows or stops food production and marketing. Food supplies are often taken and used for soldiers during war, crop cycles are interrupted, seeds and livestock are consumed in desperation, and children suffer lasting health damage as a result of insufficient f…ood. Even if fighting never occurs, heavy military spending takes away from food production, education, and health care. ( Full Answer )

GMO foods have been grown since 1996 and thus far most have been genetically engineered to be resistant to herbicides or to produce a substance in the plants themselves that kill insects when they are eaten. Unfortunately, they appear to have created, or possibly created more environmental pollution… and issues, possible health issues to animals and humans, and have not been shown to produce more or better crops than non-GMO crops. Rice has been modified to produce Vitamin A, but even that, called Golden Rice, possibly is not performing to expectations. Though some will not agree, it seems like GMO food has not been shown to be beneficial in solving the problems of world hunger. ( Full Answer )
Hunger is an enormous problem to starving countries such as China, Africa, and some parts of the United State. If we did not have world hunger that the death toll would be significantly less due to death by starvation.

yes because it will cause no more pollution and decrease the destruction of nature. ___________ No, that's silly. The earth is in fact feeling no pain. Humans are simply speeding up what are perfectly natural cycles on earth. The earth has gone through stages much more toxic than the present, and it… will again. As we speed the cycles up, we are only hastening our own destruction, nothing more. The earth will go on following its natural cycles and will neither miss us nor be grateful for our passing.

I regret sounding so negative; hunger cannot be eradicated no matter the cost. There is no way that enough people and resources could come together to do this.

How would you tell an uneducated person suffering from hunger and poverty that the world is a good place?
This is a very good question; . Is the world a good place? That's the real question. . The earth was beautiful, and still is, but what is really wrong with the earth? . I don't believe there is any real evidence that education has been a good force for overall all of life or heath on earth. It… seems the more advanced we use technology the more we poison the earth with chemicals, atomic energy, dirty air, dirty water and make more and more diseases from our bad health habits. . Now we poison foods in by making beans that have proteins we can't digest; Genetically modified for profits. . All of the so called educated and civilized countries, are reporting pandemic genetic diseases, STD's up 200% to 400% in 10 years, and new viruses, and new genetic diseases that have never been seen before. Now even the USA has a 10% rise in infant mortality in two years after 60 years of going down.. UK has 173% rise in breast cancer in 35 years. . Whatever they are doing is OBVIOUSLY not working! . The rise of genetic diseases far outweighs any other problem for human life we have today. . See links below for these statistics. . Humans have taken over the world and have simply failed utterly and completely to do anything but make the world a place that causes poverty and suffering with great distances between the rich and fat, and the suffering impoverished. The standard of this system of humans is to create smaller groups of rich elites, and more and more mass of the population in poverty and hungry. . Every Utopian idea has failed because humans are involved. The small group of "Utopian" people eventually become corrupt by the power, money and prestige, and so the only things they do after a while is to govern with that emotional need for power as the only force for governing. This has never failed in all of Human history. No matter who is in government, greed and fear become the only "logic" of governing. . I don't see much of good in humanity as a whole and humanity is in control of all this and cannot seem to overcome their own ignorance. . Only humans are the cause of this. And with all the good intentions they cannot overcome their inherent flaws of perception as a group. . There have been so very few in all of time that have broken free of human ignorance and suffering. They try to teach and are often killed because they go against those who are in power and those in power would stand to lose their power, money greed, authority, out of fear of loss. Right now the USA is in the grips of ignorant Utopian ideas that have always failed. And yet people still want to try this. . If someone were to come along and say we are going to make a new world government of peace love, healthy lifestyles, and understanding, they will be killed as they have always been killed. . So far not one human authority has been able to unite humans and form a decent government, based on peace, love, understanding, healthy lifestyles, and giving to each other in need. Never, not ever. So, this really is impossible for humans to govern themselves as they have tried for thousands of years of recycling the same ideas that have always failed.. Yet there is always this idea of hope in humans that this new generation will win. The only problem is: every generation has had the same ideas and hope that theirs is the one that will save the earth etc. . This is obvious. There are no other types of creatures on this earth with the power to destroy all life as they seem to do.. We have 47000 creatures on the endangered list of species going extinct. Most of them are directly caused by human activities.. Humans seem to be opposed to their own species as well. Even though science has absolutely clear evidence as to the cause of our genetic diseases and deformity, they refuse to do anything about it, because humans are now getting less intelligent and more sickly and emotional with every generation. (Prestigious professor of genetics at Stanford, Gerald Crapbtree's, information is linked below. ). Until humans can only follow a path of absolute adherence to morality they will never stop destroying the earth and causing poverty and hunger. . Some of the happiest and most content people I have ever met in my travels in this world were tribal people. There were up to 4 generations living in one hut and they all were at peace with each other and cared for each other. They had no education except for what they taught each other. They believed in marriage for life and to support life, harmony of beliefs, and family. . So, as you can see, religion has failed, human governments have failed, even the UN is failing because it is corrupt and people are stealing money that was supposed to go to starving people. Socialism is failing in every country, because of the rapid rise of cancer, diabetes, heart diseases and some 17000 total genetic diseases, all caused by lifestyle choices. . Our only hope is for a new start with new people, without these flaws. Living under one government of peace, love and understanding. . I don't see that ever happening. Humans always kill people who teach peace love, knowledge and understanding. . You see anyone who teaches peace love and understanding or real science, is a threat to greed, lust, fear, power, desires, hate. Those emotions seem to run the world, and as long as they do, humans will continue to suffer, no matter what their status. . If you want a scientific understanding of the human condition based on absolutely irrefutable physical evidence, goto the links below.. The evolution science blog. . Absolute Morality is that which promotes life, health and happiness. Until we can do that and live by that code of ethics, we are doomed to fail. . ( Full Answer )
