@fighthunger Hunger is reported in the mainstream media in images - if the pictures are powerful enough then the story will make the grade, if not, it seems it won't make it. Think Band Aid, Ethiopia, Geldof etc. How to keep hunger in the headlines? That's the question.
@fighthunger I think the problem with reporting on hunger is not easy because it only hits headlines when it is an extreme situation, if we were able to report on it and find space in the news before it gets drastic, then we may be able to avoid a crisis
