Quotes about Hunger

  • Hunger is not an issue of charity. It is an issue of justice. ~ Jacques Diouf
  • A hungry man can’t see right or wrong. He just sees food. ~ Pearl S. Buck
  • 35 million people in the U.S. are hungry or don’t know where their next meal is coming from, and 13 million of them are children. If another country were doing this to our children, we’d be at war. ~ Jeff Bridges
  • Food is our common ground. ~ James Beard
  • A hundred years from now it will not matter what your bank account was, the sort of house you lived in, or the kind of clothes you wore, but the world may be much different because you were important in the life of a child. ~ Author Unknown
  • A hungry man is not a free man. ~ Adlai E. Stevenson
  • This is the first generation in all of recorded history that can do something about the scourge of poverty. We have the means to do it. We can banish hunger from the face of the earth. ~ Hubert Humphrey
  • Food is national security. Food is economy. It is employment, energy, history. Food is everything. ~ José Andrés
  • America is the richest country in the world. And yet tonight, thousands of your neighbors will go to bed hungry. It may be your child’s schoolmate who is undernourished and has difficulty learning on an empty stomach. Or it could be a co-worker, a working mother whose low-wage job doesn’t make ends meet. Perhaps it’s an elderly neighbor who has to make a decision whether to delay filling a prescription or buying groceries. The faces of hunger are as broad as the faces of America. ~ David Nasby, General Mills
  • As we talk about those who are starving in countries abroad, we have indeed all of the elements of a third world nation within our own borders. ~ Rep. Floyd Flake
  • Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat. ~ Mother Teresa
  • Close to a billion people – one-eighth of the world’s population – still live in hunger. Each year 2 million children die through malnutrition. This is happening at a time when doctors in Britain are warning of the spread of obesity. We are eating too much while others starve. ~ Jonathan Sacks, Jewish scholar
  • Eating alone is a disappointment. But not eating matter more, is hollow and green, has thorns like a chain of fish hooks, trailing from the heart, clawing at your insides. Hunger feels like pincers, like the bite of crabs; it burns, burns, and has no fur. Let us sit down soon to eat with all those who haven’t eaten; let us spread great tablecloths, put salt in lakes of the world, set up planetary bakeries, tables with strawberries in snow, and a plate like the moon itself from which we can all eat. For now I ask no more than the justice of eating. ~ Pablo Neruda, Chilean Poet
  • Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. ~ Dwight D. Eisenhower
  • Find out how much God has given you and from it take what you need; the remainder is needed by others. ~ Saint Augustine
  • For now I ask no more than the justice of eating. ~ Pablo Neruda, Chilean Poet, Nobel Prize Winner
  • God, to those who have hunger, give bread, and to us who have bread, give the hunger for justice. ~ Prayer from Latin America
  • Growing numbers of corporate executives are aware of the inextricable link between the well being of our families and the well-being of our nation. Nowhere is this link manifest so strongly as with the problem of hunger. ~ Arnold Hiatt, Chair of the Stride Rite Foundation
  • Hunger is actually the worst weapon of mass destruction. It claims millions of victims each year. ~ Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, President of Brazil
  • Hunger is not a problem. It is an obscenity. How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. ~ Anne Frank
  • Hunger makes a thief of any man. ~ Pearl S. Buck
  • I have the audacity to believe that people everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for the minds and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • I hope someday we will be able to proclaim that we have banished hunger in the United States, and that we’ve been able to bring nutrition and health to the whole world. George McGovern
  • I never look at the masses as my responsibility. I look at the individual. I can love only one person at a time. I can feed only one person at a time. Just one, one, one. ~ Mother Teresa
  • I went to bed hungry many nights as a child. It was a Dream that dressed me up when I was ragged, and it was a Dream that filled me up when I was hungry. Now it’s my Dream to see that no child in this world ever goes hungry, certainly not here in America, the most bountiful country in the world. We can do better…we must! ~ Dolly Parton
  • If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich. ~ John F. Kennedy
  • If we can conquer space, we can conquer childhood hunger. ~ Buzz Aldrin
  • If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one. ~ Mother Teresa
  • If you want to eliminate hunger, everybody has to be involved. ~ Bono
  • In this country that grows more food than any other nation on this earth, it is unthinkable that any child should go hungry. ~ Sela Ward
  • Investment in the eradication of hunger today is a good business decision. If we fail to make this investment, it is doubtful that we can sustain healthy economic growth. Without this investment, our nation may disintegrate into a country sharply divided between those who have enough to eat and those who do not. ~ Alan G. Hassenfeld, Chair & CEO of Hasbro, Inc.
  • It is important for people to realize that we can make progress against world hunger, that world hunger is not hopeless. The worst enemy is apathy. ~ Reverend David Beckmann, president of Alliance to End Hunger
  • It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are thoroughly alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger after them. ~ George Eliot
  • Make us worthy, Lord, to serve those throughout the world who live and die in poverty or hunger. Give them, through our hands, this day their daily bread; and by our understanding love, give peace and joy. Amen. ~ Mother Teresa of Calcutta
  • Most of our citizenry believes that hunger only affects people who are lazy or people who are just looking for a handout, people who don’t want to work, but, sadly, that is not true. Over one-third of our hungry people are innocent children who are members of households that simply cannot provide enough food or proper nutrition. And to think of the elderly suffering from malnutrition is just too hard for most of us. Unlike Third World nations, in our country the problem is not having too little – it is about not caring enough! Write your elected representatives and promote support for the hungry. ~ Erin Brokovich
  • My motto in life is ‘If you think it, you can do it’ and if we all apply that thought we can end hunger the world over. ~ Dionne Warwick
  • Nationalism is power hunger tempered by self-deception. ~ George Orwell
  • One in four kids in the U.S. faces hunger. ~ Jeff Bridges
  • One of the greatest feelings in the world is knowing that we as individuals can make a difference. Ending hunger in America is a goal that is literally within our grasp. ~ Jeff Bridges
  • Others have questioned if hunger exists in our country; I can tell you that hunger does exist in this country. For many adults and children, going to sleep hungry is not a threat; it’s a regular occurrence. And it must end. ~ Former USDA Secretary Mike Espy
  • Pay attention to the hungry, both in this country and around the world. Pay attention to the poor. Pay attention to our responsibilities for world peace. We are our brother’s keeper… ~ George McGovern
  • Pick battles big enough to matter, small enough to win. ~ Jonathan Kozol
  • Recent research shows that many children who do not have enough to eat wind up with diminished capacity to understand and learn. Children don’t have to be starving for this to happen. Even mild undernutrition – the kind most common among poor people in America – can do it. ~ Carl Sagan, Cornell University
  • Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth. ~ Muhammad Ali
  • Some people are born with very little; some are fortunate enough to have it all. When I grew up, we didn’t have much. I had to hustle to get what I wanted… but I had that hunger for more. I didn’t always make the right choices, but I learned from my mistakes. ~ Curtis Jackson
  • The big majority of Americans, who are comparatively well-off, have developed an ability to have enclaves of people living in the greatest misery almost without noticing them. ~ Gunnar Myrdal
  • The day that hunger is eradicated from the earth, there will be the greatest spiritual explosion the world has ever known. Humanity cannot imagine the joy that will burst into the world on the day of that great revolution. ~ Federico Garcia Lorca, Spanish poet and dramatist
  • The fact is that there is enough food in the world for everyone. But tragically, much of the world’s food and land resources are tied up in producing beef and other livestock–food for the well off–while millions of children and adults suffer from malnutrition and starvation. ~ Dr.Walden Bello, 2003 Right Livelihood Award winner
  • The first essential component of social justice is adequate food for all mankind. Food is the moral right of all who are born into this world. ~ Norman Borlaug, biologist and humanitarian
  • The god of love lives in a state of need. It is a need. It is an urge. It is a homeostatic imbalance. Like hunger and thirst, it’s almost impossible to stamp out. ~ Plato
  • The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread. ~ Mother Teresa
  • The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children. ~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer
  • The victims of social injustice, since time eternal, have always been without the resources and the ability to fight back. They are defenseless and voiceless. Thee sad aspect of social injustice is that the defenseless and voiceless are the ones who most need a defense and a strong, vibrant voice. ~ Tommy Makem, Irish folk musician
  • The war against hunger is truly mankind’s war of liberation. ~ John F. Kennedy
  • There are genuinely sufficient resources in the world to ensure that no one, nowhere, at no time, should go hungry. ~ Ed Asner
  • There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies. ~ Sir Winston Churchill
  • There’s enough on this planet for everyone’s needs but not for everyone’s greed. ~ Mohandas Gandhi
  • To give up the task of reforming society is to give up one’s responsibility as a free man. ~ Alan Paton
  • Too many have dispensed with generosity in order to practice charity. ~ Albert Camus
  • True evangelical faith, cannot lie dormant, it clothes the naked, it feeds the hungry, it comforts the sorrowful, it shelters the destitute, it serves those that harm it, it binds up that which is wounded, it has become all things to all creatures. ~ Menno Simons, Founder of the Mennonites
  • Wanting something is not enough. You must hunger for it. Your motivation must be absolutely compelling in order to overcome the obstacles that will invariably come your way. ~ Les Brown
  • We are a country that prides itself on power and wealth, yet there are millions of children who go hungry every day. It is our responsibility, not only as a nation, but also as individuals, to get involved. So, next time you pass someone on the street who is in need, remember how lucky you are, and don’t turn away. ~ Lesley Boone, actress and social activist
  • We know that a peaceful world cannot long exist, one-third rich and two-thirds hungry. ~ Jimmy Carter
  • We must act together, as a united people… For the birth of a new world. Let there be justice for all. Let there be peace for all. Let there be work, bread, water and salt for all. ~ Patricia Young, World Food Day Coordinator
  • When people were hungry, Jesus didn’t say, “Now is that political, or social?” He said, “I feed you.” Because the good news to a hungry person is bread. ~ Desmond Tutu
  • When you are hungry, you can’t think about anything else. ~ Juana Janie Mendez, 17
  • When you sit in council, think not of yourselves not even of your generation. Think of those yet unborn, even unto the seventh generation, making all decisions with those generations in mind. ~ The Iroquois Confederacy cir. 1000 c.e.
  • Working at the Food Bank with my kids is an eye-opener. The face of hunger isn’t the bum on the street drinking Sterno; it’s the working poor. They don’t look any different, they don’t behave any differently, they’re not really any less educated. They are incredibly less privileged, and that’s it. ~ Mario Batali

Hunger Hike is an annual Fall community fundraising weekend which includes the traditional 3K Walk on Sunday as well as a 5K run on Saturday. This year Hunger Hike is Saturday, September 19 & Sunday, September  20, 2015.

All Hunger Hike proceeds directly support the Lafayette Urban Ministry food assistance programs including the St. John’s/LUM Food Pantry, Food Finders Food Bank, Inc., and St. Thomas Aquinas Center’s Haitian Ministry including the Haiti Water Purification Project. Since early 1990s Lafayette Urban Ministry, St. Thomas Aquinas Center and Food Finders Food Bank, Inc. have been organizing a walk to support food programs locally, regionally and globally. Formerly known as the Crop Walk, it was officially renamed Hunger Hike in 1993.

Today, Hunger Hike gives companies, organizations, families & individuals many ways to be a part of a community event with a tremendous positive impact on “Fighting Hunger.”
