If you’re someone like me, you’re thinking of what you’re going to have for dinner while you’re eating lunch. It’s common to plan vacations around places to eat while exploring a new or beloved city. It’s a tradition to gather around tables during holidays and share food with our loved ones. It’s a part of our culture. We know how to enjoy food. While the level of hunger in the world is decreasing, the reality is still that over 820 million people around the world are facing hunger, malnutrition and even starvation on a daily basis.In 2015, the United Nations gathered to dream up what it would look like to resolve some epidemics that are plaguing our global community. They later published the Sustainable Development Goals and have taken great strides over the last 4 years to make them a reality. But there is still much work to do. As a partner organization committed to making food available to everyone everywhere, it’s encouraging to see that the accessibility to food factors into a majority of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. That’s a pretty big deal! Many global crises can be alleviated by achieving food security for all.
