Hunger and Food Poverty in Germany

4th webinar of the "Hungry for Change: The Politics of Hunger in the 2020s" event series

As a result of the high cost of healthy diets coupled with persistent high levels of income inequality, it is estimated that around 3 billion people were unable to afford a healthy diet in 2019. 17,3 Mio live in Northern America and Europe. Even in Northern America and Europe, where the lowest rates of food insecurity are found, the prevalence of food insecurity increased for the first time since 2014. So hunger is not only a problem in developing countries but can also be found right on our doorstep. The webinar presents the connection between poverty, diets and nutrition and looks for the causes of food poverty and hunger in Germany.
