Indeed, it is often the only thing standing between vulnerable people and death, said FAO in 2006. However, a report published by OXFAM in 2021 titled "The Hunger Virus Multiplies", states that 11 people are likely dying due to hunger and malnutrition every minute. The report further stated that about 155 million people around the world are living in crisis levels of food insecurity (more than the previous year). This is breathtaking and very concerning, in which food aids cannot solve alone.

It is very important to know that unequal access to relevant and appropriate resources is still a major challenge. Therefore, there is an urgent need to identify the gaps in the food system of developing countries and provide locally adaptable solutions; that put into consideration their realities and ensure achievement of both medium and long term goals. Food aids can only be a short term solution to a worsened food crisis, which would cushion the effect of hunger. However, building an efficient food system would better promote sustainability and food security.

Therefore, more investment should be towards building a resilient food system and capacity building to sustain its growth. Hunger is not seasonal, and food production should not be seasonal, therefore, a resilient food system will help us to understand that hunger is not a choice.
