The world is facing a hunger crisis unlike anything it has seen in more than 50 years.
870 million people are hungry.
Every year, 1.5 million people die from hunger, including 16,000 children. That's one child every five seconds.
Every day, 20,864 people die from hunger related causes.
There were 1.4 billion people in extreme poverty in 2005.
The World Bank estimates that the spike in global food prices in 2008, followed by the global economic recession in 2009 and 2010 has pushed between 100-150 million people into poverty.
