From the change wiki

About 829 million people (1 in 10 people globally) are undernourished (lacking protein and/or calories).


For more details, see...
* Numbers & methodology of the above image
* Food production-consumption geography


Even though farms produce more than enough food crops to feed the world, too many of these crops are used inefficiently...

  • as animal feed (farm animals eat more food than they produce)
  • as biofuel (burned for energy - this is not a scalable alternative to fossil fuels)
  • and in food that goes to waste (or spoils due to improper storage)

As a result, there isn't enough to go around (globally).
