"Helping to end world hunger."
It's a tall order. Many of us have poured pennies into those little UNICEF collection boxes, or collected soda can tabs, or sponsored friends in walk events. All with the goal of ending world hunger.
But how much does that actually cost? Is it even achievable?
According to United Nations' estimates, "the cost to end world hunger completely, along with diseases related to hunger and poverty, is about $195 billion a year."
So how are we, with our little boxes of coins, bags of soda tabs and $10 pledges going to make a dent in a problem of that size?
