IF: One in eight people go to bed hungry every night

Despite there being enough food in the world to feed everyone, one in eight women, men and children go to bed hungry every night.

A report from charity coalition IF, which aims to combat world hunger and poverty, claims that nearly 940 million young people will see their life chances permanently damaged by the impact of childhood hunger by 2025.

The coalition is made up of a hundred British charities, backing the campaign to put an end to world hunger.
