SDG 2: End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture by 2030 

WHY IT MATTERS

Hunger occurs when people do not get enough nutrients for fully active and healthy lifestyles, creating a trap from which people cannot easily escape. People affected by hunger are less productive individuals, who are more prone to disease and are often unable to earn more and improve their livelihoods. There are more than 800 million people who suffer from hunger worldwide and yet we waste 1 million tonnes of food each year in Ireland. It is time to rethink how we grow, share and consume our food. If done right, agriculture, forestry and fisheries can provide nutritious food for all and generate decent incomes, while protecting the environment. 

What Can I Do?


Check dates of food in your fridge. Move these items to the front and make sure to use these before others. Organise a food collection drive on your campus. Fill a box with non-perishable foods and donate it to a food bank. Support local farmers by buying your goods at local markets.
