Food crisis in Brazil

Brazil is currently facing an epidemic more dangerous than the corona virus. It is hunger. Once hailed globally for its success in combating hunger, the country is facing a serious food crisis. After the economic boom of the 2000s and the implementation of
social policies geared towards the poor, Brazil thought it was free from this chronic problem. But after the economic breakdown, especially during Covid, tens of millions of Brazilians are haunted by the spectre of hunger every
day. Roughly, 36 percent do not have money to eat three meals a day. Ironically, hunger is not linked to war or crisis. It is the result of acute wealth concentration and inaction from the state.
