All across the world people are living in extreme poverty. Living in one of the most powerful countries in the world, it is our responsibility to help those in need. In mid-June the Global Food Security Reauthorization Act passed through the U.S. House of Representatives. The bill would help combat malnourishment and chronic hunger for an additional 5 years if passed. These continued efforts would help better coordinate investments in improving global food security for those who need it.
