1 of every 4 Ghanaian children go to bed hungry – UNICEF

By on

BdoJspzCYAA3np9The right to adequate food is realized when every man, woman and children within our communities have access to adequate food and potable water.

Ghana has an explicit recognition of the right to adequate food in its constitution, however, its implementation is usually hampered by several challenges. According to UNICEF Ghana, in 2015 an estimated one out of four children in parts of Ghana goes to bed hungry.

There are over five million Ghanaians who can’t afford a plate of food in a day and over 30% of food go waste along food supply chains in the country. Inefficiencies within the food supply chain has given rise to tonnes of food going waste, according to the report.

Recovering half of the food wasted is enough to feed the vulnerable, Food for all Ghana program, a non-governmental organization said. The NGO seeks to build community food banks in Ghana to feed the vulnerable.

As a result, it’s collating signatures in support of the project in ensuring that waste foods are preserved for the vulnerable in society.
