Hunger is not a problem. It is an obscenity. (Anne Frank)
Goal 2- Zero Hunger – End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.
Zero Hunger targets include:
By 2030, end hunger and ensure access by all people, specifically the poor and vulnerable people, such as infants, to safe, nutritious and sufficient food all year round.
Each day, a person who eats a plant-exclusive diet would not only save 1,100 gallons of water, 45 pounds of grain, 30 square feet of forested land, 20 lbs CO2 equivalent, and one animal’s life – but also many malnourished and starving human lives.
Reportedly 21,000 people die every single day of hunger, or hunger-related causes.
The United Nations Global Goals initiative wants to end global hunger by 2030 – but we already have the solution right here, right now if the planet adopted a vegan lifestyle and ate only plant-exclusive foods.
