Poverty and Hunger are Interrelated
Reducing poverty and Zero Hunger are two of the top sustainability goals for UN. We at Good Food For Good believe we all can play our part in making this goal a reality. Solution to both the goals, No Poverty and Zero Hunger, is interrelated. Food Insecurity stems from poverty and inability to make ends meet with the existing resources.
With the existing food system, our soils, forests, oceans, freshwater and biodiversity are being rapidly degraded. Many rural farmers can no longer make a living on their land and are being forced to relocate in search of better opportunities. We need to rethink how we grow and consume food that is not only good for us but for the planet. According to UN, if done right, it is enough to provide nutritious food for all and generate decent incomes while supporting people centred in rural development and protecting the environment.We want to be part of this solution, and Buy One Feed One is just the beginning.
We are proud to say that our Buy One, Feed One model has fed over 135,000 people to date, and made a difference in many more lives through organic, sugar free food.
