Did you know that there are 815 million people in the world that go to bed hungry, while 1.9 billion people are overweight?

The world has set a challenge to achieve Zero Hunger and better nutrition by 2030. But governments can’t do it alone – everyone has a role to play.

1. Food security: to guarantee access to healthy food for everyone, every day. Our Earth is capable of feeding us all: it’s down to human beings to distribute food fairly, leaving no one empty-handed!

2. Good nutrition: to make sure that people get all the nutrients they need to live well, and encourage responsible, environmentally-friendly eating habits. This will restore the balance between those who eat too much or badly, and those who don’t get enough food.

3. Sustainable agriculture: the use of fields, forests, oceans, and all natural resources essential for food production, without damaging the planet. Sustainable, because food production has to respect the environment, with all the people and animals who live in it or our resources will not last!

4. Poverty eradication: since poverty is often the direct cause of malnutrition, even in countries where food is available in supermarkets.
