People Without Food
Some people in our world don't have access to food. This is because of war, poverty or something else. 1 in 9 people go to sleep hungry every night. We should be grateful for the food we get, and remember those who aren't as lucky. To donate food, give some to your local foodbank, or give it to charities like Oxfam and the UN.
