Every second a human dies of hunger. India has a serious hunger problem and is ranked 100 out 119 countries on the global hunger index. 3000 children die in India daily due to poor diet related illness. More than 190 million people go to sleep hungry at night in India. Realizing the severity of hunger, *Goodness Foundation’s Founder Mr Paul Raja Livingston initiated Food42 campaign, it’s the first of its kind*. The objective of Food 42 (Food for two) is to raise awareness among the public on the severity of hunger problem still prevalent in India.
