The Worldwatch Institute said in 2011 far too many people were living with less than they needed. It says, for example, nearly one billion people were hungry and just as many were illiterate. Worldwatch Institute’s Danielle Nierenberg said while a billion people went to bed hungry each night, it wasn’t because of a lack of available food. “We produce more than enough food in the world to not only feed the 7 billion people who are on earth today, but 9 to 11 billion people....But the question is really one of how do we get food to the people who need it the most."
