Hunger No More: Faces Behind the Facts

Aired 2006-07. Presented by the National Council of Churches Tremendous progress has been made in addressing the crisis of world hunger in the last 25 years. The world community has the knowledge, technology and resources to end malnutrition. The faces of hunger can be reduced in number as faith groups work together in creative initiatives through local, regional and international programs. Hunger No More: Faces Behind the Facts included interviews with Senator Elizabeth Dole and former Senator George McGovern. The program highlighted community economic development; advocacy with state and federal governments to change systems that allow poor people to escape the cycle of poverty and hunger; and positive choices individuals have made to eradicate chronic hunger in our lifetime. The faces are more than facts when people work together to create a world where, as the disciple John envisioned, there is “hunger no more.”
