Why Are We Feeding Animals While Humans Starve?

The global food system needs to be more equitable. While millions of people go hungry every day, billions of animals are raised for food in factory farms. These animals are fed a diet of grain and soy that could be used to provide food to humans.

The global population will reach nearly 10 billion over the next 25 years. To feed this growing population, we will need to produce more food. However, the current food system is not sustainable. Animal agriculture is a major contributor to climate change, water pollution, and deforestation.

Why do we continue to fatten animals while humans starve? 

A growing body of evidence suggests that we can feed a growing population without animal agriculture. A study by the University of Oxford found that a plant-based diet could provide enough food for 10 billion people by 2050.

There are a number of reasons why a plant-based diet is more sustainable than an omnivorous diet:

  1. Plant-based foods require less land, water, and energy to produce than animal products.
  2. Plant-based foods produce fewer greenhouse gases.
  3. Plant-based foods are more nutrient-dense than animal products.

The transition to a plant-based diet will require a change in mindset and a shift in the way we produce food. However, a change is necessary if we want to feed a growing population in a sustainable and cruelty-free way.

Let’s support the innovative companies are developing new ways to produce plant-based and sustainable food

The global food system is inequitable, and it is time for a change. We must move towards a more sustainable and ethical food system that does not fatten animals while humans starve. Join us in supporting this important change.
