World hunger
Most of us don’t think too much about world hunger. When we are hungry, we can always find something to eat- usually something delicious. But in many parts of the world ?even in some rich countries ? adults and children go to bed hungry every day. According to the World Hunger Program in Newport, Rhode Island, 780 million people in the world don’t get enough to eat. One out of every six babies in the world is born underweight and even worse, one out of every three children is underweight at age five.
There are two main causes of hunger ? food “shortage” and food “poverty”. A food shortage happens when there isn’t enough food in an area to feed all the people that live there. This has happened recently in some African countries when there wasn’t enough rain for people to grow the food they needed. Sometimes a food shortage affects just one part of a country, and other times the entire country is affected. Food poverty is the cause of hunger when people don’t have enough money to buy food. There is plenty of food in the stores, but some people can’t afford to buy enough food, so they go hungry.

Match each word with the correct meaning.
1. underweight a. one person
2. shortage b. whole
3. entire c. have enough money
4. individual d. too small
5. afford e. not enough of something

Reread the article and fill in the blanks.
1.At least ________ people in the world are hungry every day. (how many?)
2.The world Hunger Program offices are in ______________________________ (where?)
3.___________________________ babies are underweight when they are born. (how many?)
4.__________________________children are underweight at age five. (how many?)
5.A ___________________ happens when there is no food in an area for people to buy. (what?)
6._______________ happens when some people don’t have many to buy enough food. (what?)
