Most people presume that world hunger is caused by a lack of food. But Esther Ndichu, the humanitarian supply chain director at UPS, argues that the real issue is logistics. She points out that food often rots just miles from the neediest people and that farmers often can’t get goods to market. By fixing the “last mile,” she shows that hunger can be solved in our lifetime.
TED@UPS was a TED-curated event featuring a diverse group of speakers from across the UPS community. Jointly produced by TED and UPS, the event put a spotlight on ideas, projects and insights that will contribute to the importance of pushing forward through obstacles.

Perfectly addressed indeed hunger is caused by logistics issue rather than food issue
Hunger is a big issue and on and on…… Wow good speech must be awesome you are like totally cool. Lol hey if food goes bad before it gets to where we need it most how come no one is solving that problem instead of just focusing on giving food, they should be focusing on getting the food there first
Hunger is a world issue. let's all make a difference
