What Catholic Schools Can Do about World Hunger
Byron, William J.
International Studies in Catholic Education, v7 n2 p201-209 2015
The main contribution that Catholic schools can make towards the elimination of world hunger is to help their students understand the problem and then motivate them to assist as best they can once they are out of school. The basic cause of the problem is poverty. The ultimate solution is production of food in the food-deficit nations, or where production is not possible, establishing trade and import links whereby food can be made available.
