damonIn a new PSA from the U.S. State Department, Matt Damon highlights the growing world hunger crisis — and the effects that climate change will have on feeding billions of people.

“Every 5 seconds a child dies of hunger,” he says. “Each year we’re losing 6 million children. That’s more than the population of Manhattan and Paris combined.

And what affects some of us now, may affect all of us tomorrow.
