Global Hunger and Food Security
We can ask this question because we are a Global Community and it is responsible to inquire. I am certain of reply and that will be that we give enormous amounts of AID through USAID in humanitarian aid and chemical inputs, Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) plants and seed stock (without acknowledgement it is GMO) that only weaken the food security of the nations we wish to help.
What we must do (and are doing at neemtree.org ) is seek to empower those individuals in countries by developing sustainable processes that enable them to reach levels of self sufficiency and attain eventual self reliance. That is the answer to global poverty, creation of a sustainable system that is on-going, not one of dependence that is a form of corporate colonialism. Helping feed in immediate circumstance is great but it must be augmented by systems that create infrastructures. If we do not seek these systems the global community will never reach food security because temporary handouts of food are just that, temporary and will never meet the growing demand and population growth. If we keep people in a cycle they will never get out of it.
This does not address our propensity to also promote bio-diesel fuel. That is something that will cause or create starvation at enormous levels as we outsource to emerging economies and promote growth of corn for our cars instead of food for people. If you want to see real hunger, if you want to see some very serious wars and civil unrest; wait until countries grow food for us to drive.

Healthy Start Public Education Inc. has publicly expressed intent to demolish two contributing historic structures/homes at 804/806 Jackson St in Morehead Hill State & National Historic District in an effort to expand further into the Morehead Hill Neighborhood. This action is contrary to the positive development in Durham, the intent of establishing the historic district and prevention of encroachment into historically significant areas by commercial enterprise.
By signing this petition you object to this demolition in strong opposition to the action.
