Though there is enough food in the world today to feed everyone, not everyone gets enough food to eat. And what they get may or may not be nutritious. Wasting and obesity are both problems of poverty today. As Christians, we believe that global health issues are social justice issues: everyone should have access to good nutrition, clean water, health care, medicines, and education. Countries around the world have agreed upon sustainable development goals to reach by 2030, including ending hunger. How can people of faith contribute to the political will and the leadership of shifting the paradigm for vulnerable populations to enhance access to nutrition for mothers and children, end stunting and wasting, increase food security, and reduce malnutrition? This chat will cover these areas and more at the intersection of justice and global nutrition.
