Ending World Hunger

No, it is not a joke! It is completely doable. The Borgen Project at the UN estimates that the cost to end world hunger is $30 Billion per year (and yes that includes all the people starving here in the USA as well). Consider that we spent $90 Billion last year "winding down" the war in Afghanistan and it puts it in a little bit of a perspective. BTW, don't even think about what it is costing us to listen to everyone's email and phone conversations. Just Sayin'

Just to add a little insult to injury....the estimates are that we throw $ 43 Billion worth of perfectly good food in the bin in the U.S. every year and that it costs us over a Billion dollars to dispose of it.
