ROME– Pope Francis is set to visit Rome’s World Food Program on June 13, the United Nations’ frontline agency that works to end world hunger.The Pope is going to speak to World Food Program because ‘he believes in the cause’ of thier organization.According to the UN’s agency, there are 795 million undernourished people in the world today, which means that one in nine people don’t have enough food to be healthy. Their website states that “hunger and malnutrition are in fact the number one risk to health worldwide — greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.”WFP also defines hunger as “entirely solvable” because “there’s enough food in the world to feed everyone and no scientific breakthroughs are needed.”“Today’s knowledge, tools and policies, combined with political will, can solve the problem” they claim.
