let's make hunger history


This is the first generation in all of recorded history that can do something about the scourge of poverty. We have the means to do it. We can banish hunger from the face of the earth.

~ Hubert Humphrey ~
U.S. Vice President 1965-1969

Something tells me that one of the ways we can make hunger a thing of the past is to stop messing with food. If we stop processing the life and nutrients out of it, maybe...just maybe it will actually nourish the people who eat it. Surely, there is enough to go around.

Don't you think?

Yes. And I'm a bit depressed that HH said this THIRTY years ago!

Guess that means we are now in the second generation able to do something about it. Perhaps we will figure it out.
