How will we feed nine billion people by 2050? Your idea could be the answer.

Think about the last time you were truly hungry. It was uncomfortable, maybe even painful. It made focusing difficult. You were tired. The day dragged on. By the time you were finally fed, it must have felt like you were running on fumes. Now imagine that level of hunger was what you dealt with every day of your life.
