Book – Caring About Hunger by George Kent

In a world of abundant resources and wealth, hunger cannot be understood simply as a problem of food production. It is also a matter of human relations. Hunger grows out of widespread indifference and exploitation. The goal of ending hunger has been achieved in many places, including places where people are poor. In stable, strong communities, where people care about one another’s well-being, no one goes hungry. That caring is further strengthened when people work and play together. This insight tells us the direction we need to take to move toward a world without hunger. The problem of global hunger will be solved when we learn to live well together.

George Kent is Professor of Political Science (Emeritus) at the University of Hawaii, U.S.A. He currently teaches an online course on the Human Right to Adequate Food at the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies, University of Sydney, Australia, and also the Transformative Social Change concentration at Saybrook University in San Francisco.
