Work to End Hunger

October 16, 2017

Around the world on October 16 each year, people come together for World Food Day to take steps to eradicate hunger. Access to food is a basic human right, and we can end hunger in our lifetime.

“Because when it comes to hunger, the only acceptable number is zero.”  

It's no wonder that a mindful observance of World Food Day is happening in tandem with Fair Trade Month in October—one of the best ways consumers can help alleviate the effects of poverty-driven hunger is to buy fair tradeSmall farmers hold the key to higher wagers for producers and sustainable livelihoods for themselves and their families. Your purchases of fairly-traded food makes a real difference in their ability to put food on their own table.

Your purchases at the Good Buy have supported decades-long work for economic and environmental justice by UUSC, shining a spotlight on the injustices in the food industry. Supporting small farmers and cooperatives is one of many ways forward in advancing a more equitable world.

For many of us in the U.S., we rarely give a thought to food scarcity. But it’s a daily reality for families around the globe. Hunger doesn’t take a day off.
