Hunger is a serious problem around the world, but it also affects millions here in the United States as well. The World Food Programme, an organization which aims to fight hunger worldwide, states that hunger is the number one health risk in the world and that one in seven people in the world will go to bed hungry tonight.
Though the statistics are alarming, there is something Garden State residents can do to help. In the humanitarian tradition of “thinking globally and acting locally”, the upcoming Brake the Hunger Cycle Tour is a charity bike event in Northern New Jersey in which all proceeds are donated to the efforts to end hunger, both locally and abroad.
