1 Why food won’t solve the problem of hunger | Nick Saul | TEDxToronto
13 dec. 2016
On October 27, 2016, some of Toronto’s greatest thinkers and change-makers joined together onstage at TEDxToronto to deliver powerful talks and performances that embodied our theme, Symbols + Signals.
Born in Tanzania and raised in Canada, Nick Saul is President and CEO of Community Food Centres Canada, a national organization that builds and supports vibrant, food-focused community centres in low-income neighbourhoods. These centres are based on the idea that good food is a powerful force for greater health, equity and social change.
He is a recipient of the prestigious Jane Jacobs Prize, as well as an honorary doctorate from Ryerson University. A long-time community organizer, Nick speaks regularly on issues of justice and the Community Food Centre model of food access, health and community building.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

3 Building the Robin Hood Army | Neel Ghose | TEDxYouth@CAJCS
25 sep. 2017
Neel Ghose is currently a student of the Harvard Business School, and the founder of the Robin Hood Army. Before getting back into academics, Neel was the Vice President of International Operations of the startup, Zomato. He is a bit of a nomad and has lived in 8 cities across 5 countries, setting up the operations of Zomato and the Robin Hood Army, worldwide.
In his free time, along with his friend Anand, Neel has set up the Robin Hood Army (RHA) – a volunteer-based organisation which collects excess food from restaurants and distributes it to the less fortunate. In three years, the RHA has served food to over 2 million people through a network of 10,000 volunteers across 41 cities. He likes to believe that the RHA is just ‘1% Done’.

25 Sobering Statistics On Global Poverty That Might Upset You
24 dec. 2013
Everyone knows there is poverty in the world. But what exactly does that mean? These are 25 sobering statistics on global poverty that might upset you.
Check out the text version too! – http://list25.com/25-sobering-statist…
Here’s a preview:
At least 80% of humanity lives on less than $10 per day
To put things into perspective, the top 20% of the world’s population accounts for three quarters of the world’s income
Half of the world’s population accounts for only 5% of the world’s income
According to UNICEF, 22,000 children die every day due to poverty
Nearly one third of children in developing countries are estimated to be underweight or stunted
Last year, about 70 million children of primary school age were not in school
Nearly a billion people celebrated the coming of the 21st century without being able to read a book or sign their name
Preventable diseases like Malaria afflict nearly 500 million people every year
Africa alone accounts for roughly 1 million deaths due to Malaria annually. Most of them are children
Speaking of children, there are 2.2 billion children in the world.
Half of them live in extreme poverty
Over 1 billion people have inadequate access to water and 2.6 billion lack basic sanitation. Many times this means no separation of drinking water and toilet water.
That is why 1.8 million children die every year of diarrhoea
Approximately half of the world’s population now lives in cities and about one third of those in the cities live in slum conditions
In fact, slum growth is outpacing urban growth by a frighteningly large margin
One quarter of humanity lives without electricity
The 7 richest people in the world make more than the poorest 41 countries combined (roughly 567 million people)
.14% of the world population own over 80% of the world’s private financial wealth. The vast majority of that wealth has managed to avoid all income and estate taxes, either by the countries where it has been invested or where it comes from.
For every $1 in aid that a developing country receives, over $25 is spent on debt repayment.
The poorer the country, the more likely it is that the debt repayments are being extracted directly from the people who neither contracted the loans nor received any money
In 1998 $8 billion dollars was spent on cosmetics in the United States, $11 billion was spent on ice cream in the European Union, $17 billion was spent on pet food in Europe and the US, $100 billion was spent on alcohol in Europe, $400 billion was spent on narcotics globally, and $780 billion was spent on militaries around the world.
In the same year $6 billion was spent on achieving basic education for all, $9 billion was spent on basic water and sanitation for all, and $13 billion was spent on basic health and nutrition for all
If you are reading this list then you are in the top 30% of the world’s population when it comes to poverty and wealth
With new technologies we now grow enough food to feed 10 billion people or 1.5 times the world population. The problem is that most of the world can’t afford to buy that food.
If the world spent less than 1% of what it spends on weapons all the previously mentioned issues would be fixed
