More than 700 million people, or 10 per cent of the world population, still live in extreme poverty today, struggling to fulfill the most basic needs like health, education, and access to water and sanitation, to name a few. The majority of people living on less than $1.90 a day live in sub-Saharan Africa. Worldwide, the poverty rate in rural areas is 17.2 per cent—more than three times higher than in urban areas.
The United Nations has made “No Poverty” as the number one goal. The World bank group and various government efforts had been put in place to fight this battle. However, extreme poverty is still prevalent,
For this reason, Feed The Poor Foundation of America Inc also known as Feed The Poor Foundation established August 2nd of every year as World Feed The Poor Day to encourage collective efforts of individuals, businesses and non-governmental organizations to fight against this pandemic of all time.

Our focus for World Feed The Poor Day is to collectively end extreme poverty through physical and spiritual means.
