In the fight to end hunger, malnutrition and food insecurity, we can leave no | behind.

The Healthy Living Coalition will drive progress under the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals with a focus on SDG-2: Zero Hunger

What are the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals?

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, also known as the Global Goals, are the world’s shared plan to end extreme poverty, reduce inequalities and protect the planet by 2030.

The global outbreak of COVID-19 has reversed decades of progress on the Global Goals, hitting hardest in the poorest and most vulnerable communities.

What is SDG-2 Zero Hunger, and why is it important to us?

Sustainable Development Goal 2, Zero Hunger, aims to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture. The Healthy Living Coalition will drive progress under this goal to address widespread issues like food insecurity and malnutrition. 

The world is not on track to achieve Zero Hunger by 2030, and if recent trends continue, the number of people affected by hunger would surpass 840 million by 2030.

The population facing food insecurity is expected to double as a result of the pandemic, with rates on the rise in the poorest and wealthiest countries alike.

Zero Hunger Targets

To make real progress, we have to consider every aspect of hunger from food waste and sustainable agriculture to malnutrition and equitable food security. The Healthy Living Coalition will focus on targets 2.1 and 2.2 and will devote resources to provide nutrition and food access to those who need it most.

By 2030, end hunger and ensure access, especially for those in underserved areas or vulnerable situations, to safe, nutritious and sufficient food all year round.

By 2030, end all forms of malnutrition – including chronic diseases like diabetes, and everything from stunting and wasting to obesity.

We must act now, and we can’t do this alone.

Facts and Stats
  • Current estimates are that nearly 690 million people are hungry, or 8.9 percent of the world population – up by 10 million people in one year and by nearly 60 million in five years.

  • In 2019, close to 750 million – or nearly one in ten people in the world – were exposed to severe levels of food insecurity

  • An estimated 2 billion people in the world did not have regular access to safe, nutritious and sufficient food in 2019.

  • If recent trends continue, the number of people affected by hunger will surpass 840 million by 2030, or 9.8 percent of the global population.

  • 144 million children under age 5 were affected by stunting in 2019

  • In 2019, 6.9 per cent (or 47 million) children under 5 were affected by wasting, or acute undernutrition, a condition caused by limited nutrient intake and infection.

SDG2 Advocacy Hub and “Good Food” for All

Good food is a foundation for everything, it gives us the energy we need to fight for a better future for everyone, everywhere. With our friends at The SDG2 Advocacy Hub, we hope to create a better world with good food, for all. 

The SDG2 Advocacy Hub acts as a central resource for NGOs, agricultural networks, nutritionists, campaigners, civil society, the private sector and UN agencies to coordinate advocacy efforts and achieve SDG-2 by 2030.

Good Food Is Nutritious

Healthy food that is safe to consume, allows us to reach our fullest potential, to grow, to prosper and to live healthy lives and thrive.

Good Food Saves Lives

Nutrition is the foundation of a healthy life. Without access to good food, the health and well-being of our families and communities are at risk. We must make healthy, nutritious food available and accessible to all. 

Good Food Is Not Always a Choice

Billions of people around the world don’t have an option to choose good food. It may not be available, affordable, or accessible. It’s time to level the playing field with food systems that reach everyone with the healthy food they need. 

Good Food Makes Progress Possible

Only if we are healthy and strong can we fight injustice and create a better and more equitable world for all. To be at our best we must have good food, first.

Good Food Is About Love

Love of flavor, health, celebration and adventure. Love of children, friends and family. Love of people and planet. 

Stay tuned for next year!

The 2021 United Nations Food Systems Summit

The United Nations Food Systems Summit will look at connected issues of climate, social and economic issues, environment and nutrition, and all SDGs as they relate to our global “food systems” – the ways in which we produce, process and consume food.
