From the World Book Online:
Hunger is one of the world's main social problems. In both developing and developed countries, millions of people are too poor to raise or buy enough food. Furthermore, the world's growing population creates a greater demand for food every year. But droughts, floods, or other natural disasters destroy many food crops annually. Many developing countries lack the expertise and equipment needed to produce adequate food supplies for their people. Hunger differs from famine, which is a prolonged food shortage in a certain geographic area (see Famine).
