About Venezuela

Venezuela has a population of almost 29 million that continues to grow each year. Venezuela suffers from chronic food shortages. Basic staples such as sugar, rice, milk are often hard to find at grocery stores. Paradoxically, the obesity rate is also rising in Venezuela. As food, especially healthy food, is in short supply and often expensive, families buy what they can afford. The food they can afford and access is usually highly processed and has little nutritional value. According to the World Health Organization 67.5 percent of Venezuelans over 20 years old are overweight and nearly 40 percent of Venezuelans are obese.
