Black and white poster produced for the Freedom From Hunger Campaign, an informational initiative launched by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in 1960. The FFHC aimed to raise awareness of inefficient agricultural practices used around the world (particularly in developing countries) and improve them via new techniques and technology to reduce global hunger. This is one of a series of posters depicting agricultural practice and industries in various parts of the world.

This poster includes statistics to raise awareness for the FAO's mission to end global hunger, featuring a black and white photo of distressed people, many of them children, clustered together holding empty bowls.
