Global Child Nutrition Month is observed annually in April to heighten awareness of childhood hunger. In 2009, the World Food Programme estimated that as many as 350 million of the world’s children suffer from poverty and hunger. The goals and ideals of Global Child Nutrition Month are to acknowledge that global hunger can be overcome by combining the will and resources of individuals and organizations. Freeing children from hunger allows them to become self-supporting and contributing citizens and is a step toward building a stable and peaceful world.
Global Child Nutrition Month provides a unique opportunity to demonstrate social responsibility and help increase awareness of global child hunger issues through GCNF’s Change Our World campaign.
