Hunger is not only a social problem. It is a disease.. A disease that is affecting the lives of millions. Millions of people worldwide fight hunger daily and continues to live in hunger. Jyoti’s family is one of them. Jyoti, a class 5th student studying in a Government Primary School in Gurugram is the single child of her family. Her father is a labour who works on the basis of daily wages and her mother works as a maid in a middle class family. A family of three sometimes struggles to have a proper 3 time meal but with the mid day meal programme in Jyoti’s school, she gets to enjoy tasty, nutritious food during the day.
There are many kids like Jyoti who are lucky to enjoy the nutritious food provided in the mid day meal programme, but still there are many out there, who are unaware about such programmes to defeat hunger in the long run. On this World Food Day, 16th October, 2018 let’s pledge to direct our actions towards the eradication of hunger because “Our Actions Are Our Future” and if we act in the right direction, “A Zero Hunger World Is Possible By 2030.”
