A feeling of emptiness, fatigue, lack of concentration, nausea. Everyone knows what it's like to feel the pangs of hunger, but not all of us are forced to go hungry for days due to a lack of nutritious food. Each year, roughly 20 million children suffer from severe acute malnutrition; over 1 million children die as a direct result.
