Fight against hunger to alleviate poverty - Mengi

Date Published: 

World Food Programme (WFP) end-hunger Ambassador Reginald Mengi has said nations cannot succeed in poverty alleviation without waging a concerted fight against hunger. Speaking yesterday at the launch of `Walk the World 2011` in Dar es Salaam, Mengi said statistics indicated that one in seven children in Tanzania goes to bed hungry every night while a lot of food is thrown away because people cannot finish a plate of meal due to obesity.
