The Lovaganza Foundation Embarked On A 25-Year Project In 2010 To Eradicate Hunger In Children

Most Americans don’t realize it, but 8,000 children in the United States die of hunger every year. That is a sad fact, and the fact that more than three million children around the world die of hunger every year is even sadder. The Hunger issue isn’t new. The United Nations and other organizations have been hard at work for years trying to wipe out malnutrition and hunger. But there are an incredible amount of challenges to face, and there has never been a concerted effort to address the root of the hunger problem in children. Nations around the world believe there more important priorities on, so there has never been enough resources available to get hunger in the poorest countries under control, until now. A French-Canadian couple, J.F. and Genevieve Gagnon, take childhood hunger personally, and they’re doing something about it. That something is called the Lovaganza Foundation.

The Lovaganza Foundation could only be the creation of two people in the film and entertainment industry. J.F. Gagnon is a director, producer, composer, singer, and actor, and he has many film credits to his name. Genevieve is an actress as well as a director and producer. Genevieve is in charge of directing and producing the Lovaganza Convoy. The Lovaganza Convoy is a series of short documentaries filmed in several different countries that address hunger issues. The documentaries are designed to motivate other organizations to joined the Lovaganza Foundation. The launch of the Lovaganza Convoy is set for 2020, but the Gagnon’s have released a trailer that highlights the points they want to make to other organizations.

But Lovaganza is more than the sum of its parts, according to J.F. Gagnon. Gagnon told the press that Lovaganza has taken on a life of its own and celebrities, politicians, and other high-profile individuals are getting behind the movement donating time and money to the cause. The response to Lovaganza has better than expected and if the interest keeps up the Gagnon’s feel that the goal to feed all the children around the world by 2035 will certainly become a reality.

But the Gagnon’s and their team of supporters are not satisfied yet. They know anything can happen over the next fourteen years, so they continue to travel, film, and communicate with organizations and people in the nations that could help Lovaganza the most. It’s not an easy task, but J.F.and Genevieve said it is the task they were born to do.
