In the future, experts think nine billion people will live on Earth. By 2050, they say we will need twice as much food. This worries officials because many people already don't have enough to eat. More than 800 million people go to bed hungry. There might be a solution in our forests. A new report says if we take care of our forests, they can help reduce hunger and make our food better. Forests give us half of the fresh fruit we eat worldwide. They also grow important crops like coffee, avocados, cashews, and other good seeds and nuts. A scientist from the University of Cambridge says we can have fields for growing crops and keep our forests healthy if we do it the right way.
