According to a new report from the United Nations, an estimated 690 million people went hungry in 2019 -- 10 million more than in 2018.
Published July 13, the newest edition of the State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World report said that billions of people do not have access to nutritious food, usually due to high costs and low affordability.
Addressing hunger and related problems "takes just policies," Msgr. Fernando Chica Arellano told Vatican News.
Arellano is the Holy See's permanent observer to the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization.
