Well fed Europeans and North Americans don't ofetn take the time to think about world hunger. Obesity, not starvation, is on TV and in the media. Hunger affects 850 million people each year, but you wouldn't know that just walking down the streets of Paris.
The World Food Program opened a Paris office in 2005 to raise awareness about this "invisible" problem. To celebrate their one year anniversary, and to commemorate World Food Day on October 16, they organized a Marche Contre la Faim, or Walk Against Hunger. I reported from the event for RFI.
