The food bank
It is petty that food bank is non profitable and charity forum while hunger and poverty is
prevailing on a very large scale. Despite the unprecedented scientific developments human
race is suffering from the same unprecedented level of hunger and poverty. According to
the American Dietetic Association position statement on " hunger and poverty ",
one billion - world population has sunk in the deep sea of hunger and poverty. Ironically
in Pakistan, 35% of Pakistani population is living below poverty level and underfed as
compared to 20% of world population. This is why Pakistan Dietetic & Nutrition
