A partnership to help end hunger.

 

At Page House, our mission is to improve food safety and end hunger not only domestically, but worldwide. We realize this is a big goal, one that we can’t hope to achieve all on our own. To make a positive impact and accomplish this mission we have partnered with Conoy of Hope, a faith-based organization with a long history as an early responder in times of natural disasters. Convoy of Hope has been a Four Star Charity for 14 consecutive years and has served more than 85 million people since it was founded in 1994. With the purchase of a bag of Page House Heat-Treated Flour, you provide one meal to a child in need.

Facts About Hunger in America

 

 

  • 1 in 5 children in America is at risk of hunger. Among African-Americans and Latinos, it’s 1 in 3. (1)
  • 11.4% of the world’s population is hungry. While that sounds like a small amount, that percentage represents 815 million people who go undernourished on a daily basis. (2)
  • In 2010, an estimated 7.6 million children – more than 20,000 a day – died. Poor nutrition plays a role in at least half of these deaths. (3)
  • Nearly one-third of women of reproductive age worldwide suffer from anemia which also puts the nutrition and health of many children at risk.(4)
  • Pregnant women in hunger are so deficient of basic nutrients (like iron) that 315,000 die during childbirth from hemorrhaging every year. (5)
  • In 2016 the number of chronically undernourished people in the world was estimated to have increased from 815 million, up from 777 million in 2015. (6)
  • 22.9% or 155 million children under five years of age across the world suffer from stunted growth due to malnutrition and undernourishment. (7)
