Daily Bread

bread for the worldONE, "a grassroots campaign and advocacy organization...committed to the fight against extreme poverty and preventable disease," blogs today on the organization, Bread for the World, and their 2010 Hunger Report.
The report notes that hunger is on the rise in both the U.S. and abroad—1.02 billion people are suffering from food insecurity around the world, up 100 million from last year. The report also argues that green jobs are the best investment that the U.S. can make. Green jobs will not only help reduce both unemployment numbers and carbon emissions, but they could also help address hunger and poverty throughout the developing world.
Bread for the World provides both html and pdf access to the report with interactive and downloadable data sets. Besides global statistics, the data sets include:
  • U.S.: Hunger And Health
  • U.S.: Income Security
  • U.S.: National Hunger and Poverty Trends
  • U.S.: State Hunger and Poverty Statistics
