Fighting hunger in Brazil

City of Belo Horizonte comes up with innovative ways to ensure no one goes hungry.

    About a billion people suffer from hunger everyday throughout the world, according to the UN, and millions of those people are in Brazil.

    But with the help of the government's Zero Hunger programme in the country, the southeastern city of Belo Horizonte has come up with a series of innovative ways that ensure no one ever goes without food. 

    The food security policies have had real results - including a 60 per cent drop in infant mortality and a 75 per cent decrease in child malnutrition
