High food prices are creating … a silent tsunami threatening to plunge…every continent into
hunger.’ – World Food Programme, 22 April 2008

‘For farmers, higher food prices should help us, but instead they make our lives harder.’
– Bob Atanga, a small farmer in a household in Nyariga, near Bolgatanga, Upper East Region,Ghana, that consumes more than it can produce

‘I used to make breakfast for my two children before setting off for work as a street vendor but
increases in food prices mean my children now go without their morning meal’
- Judith Alexandre,Carrefour-Feilles district of Port-au-Prince, Haiti
