Some words from Pope Francis:

“We promote an authentic cooperation with the poor so that through the fruits of their and our work they can live a dignified life.

I invite all of the institutions of the world, the Church, each of us, as one single human family, to be a voice for all those who suffer from hunger so that this voice becomes a roar which can shake the world.

This […] is also an invitation to all of us to become more conscious in our food choices, which often lead to waste and a poor use of the resources available to us.

It is also a reminder to stop thinking that our daily actions do not have an impact on the lives of those who suffer from hunger first hand.

I ask you from the bottom of my heart […] ensure food for all. Let us pray that the Lord gives us grace to envisage a world in which no one must ever again die of hunger. And asking for this grace, I give you my blessing.”

I suggest we do this the whole way:

A message from the UN:

“In order to maintain sustainability as we move toward a global population of 9.1 billion people by 2050, the United Nations is calling for a global shift toward a vegan diet, saying that this is crucial to saving the world population from hunger, fuel shortages and the worst impacts of climate change.

Agriculture, particularly meat and dairy production, accounts for 70% of global freshwater consumption, 38% of total land use and 19% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to a new report from the United Nations entitled Assessing the Environmental Impact of Consumption and Production.

The report states, “Impacts from agriculture are expected to increase substantially due to population growth, increasing consumption of animal products. Unlike fossil fuels, it is difficult to look for alternatives: people have to eat. A substantial reduction of impacts would only be possible with a substantial worldwide diet change, away from animal products.””

And a sweet greeting from Luiz:
