Food challenges confronting world population
In the recent years, we find that there are growing needs of food among poor nations. As there is a rise in the prices of grains, vegetables and dairy products, many poor people who work on daily labor, find it very difficult to buy groceries. This is gives a fact that there is a need to expand agriculture sector and control market prices for selling essential food products.
Especially women and children have to be given the best care and this requires free subsidy of food that can be given to poor nations who have no infrastructure and lower industrial development. While efforts can be made towards building of agriculture farms, fields and home gardening to grow vegetables, the hour of the need is to meet the immediate need of food challenge and supply free food to poor and needy.
These challenges of food and poverty can be met with when there is good funding in International voluntary food organizations that offer free supply of food in remote areas where there is no access to clean water, electricity and food.
In order to help women and children, many new food projects and plans can be undertaken that include monthly food plan for poor women and children, free meals for school going children and there can be more plans for bringing awareness among poor women to take up home based food plans that can help neighbor communities to share food. For instance, making snacks at home or selling home grown vegetables or by making handicrafts at home, there can be good prospects for women to earn money from home and this can be spent for buying groceries from the market.
Health benefits for children who are below the age of ten years have to be offered and further nutrition help must also be provided through medical camps and clinics.
Helping with food projects and developing the growth plan for food supply will definitely help poor nations to receive better health care and will further encourage them to take up daily jobs to earn their living.
Governments and food organizations must take effective measures to meet the challenges of food supply, prices and demand.
