MANILA, Philippines – Hunger persists across the nation and while the situation has improved, it remains “serious,” the International Food Policy Research Institute said. The Philippines’ Global Hunger Index score of 13.2 ranks 28th worldwide.

The #HungerProject microsite was launched on Monday, March 3, to create greater awareness about the hunger problem and how urgently it needs a coordinated response from government, non-governmental organizations, and individuals who care enough to do something about it.
