new book on world hunger

Pope Francis: “Throwing away food is like stealing from the table of those who are poor and hungry.”

My book on hunger: “half of all wasted food is sufficient to end world hunger.”

My latest book is on the topic of world hunger:
Hunger Math: world hunger by the numbers
It is now available from Amazon.com in Kindle format. If you don’t have a Kindle device, you can download the free reader software for computers, tablets, smart phones, etc.

Why did I spend so much time researching and writing a book on hunger? It is because I am concerned for the bodies as well as the souls of my neighbors. I am concerned for the hungry of the world, who are like Lazarus, suffering from hunger at our very doorstep. I cannot focus only on the spiritual needs of my fellow human beings, and ignore their bodily needs.

I will be working on some additional theology books and booklets next, probably focusing on salvation theology.

    Ron,
    Jesus states that in Matthew 6:26
    Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

    I truly believe that God miraculously provides food for the entire World. I think hunger is a myth brought on by the liberal green movement. The environmentalists and liberals love to use food and water shortages as an excuse to support contraception, abortion, and climate change. There are some regions of the World that do have shortages due to war and brutal dictators but very few of the 7 billion on this planet die of starvation. I have not read your book.

    • Ron Conte says:

      Creation does indeed provide an abundance of resources that would be more than sufficient to feed the world — if sin and selfishness did not intervene. The FAO puts the number of undernourished persons in the world at about 868 million, with about 8% of those persons in a state of famine. The rest are in a state of hunger; they have enough food to survive, but not enough for good health.

      It is not a myth that hundreds of millions of persons are hungry. It is well established by the many persons and non-profit agencies that help hungry populations in the world. Catholic Relief services has information on this topic.
