Around the world, one in eight people go to bed hungry every night despite there being enough food for everyone. Over-consumption, misuse of resources, and waste are common elements of a system that leaves hundreds of millions without enough to eat.
To better understand the challenges that people face getting enough of the right food, Oxfam has compiled a global snapshot of 125 countries indicating the best and worst places to eat, the 'Good Enough to Eat' index. It is the first of its kind and reveals the different challenges that people face depending on where they live.

Oxfam also developed an interactive food index to demonstrate the different challenges—from access, to affordability, to quality—that people face around the world. Click here to view.
