As an American, how often do you find yourself scooping excess food into the garbage, simply because you cannot afford that last bite? Fairly often, it is safe to assume. Surely nobody does this to be spiteful to those who do not have enough food to eat, but it is always important to be mindful of just how prominent hunger is in this world. This realization, though, is finally being abated in what is expected to be the most successful way yet.
World famous chefs, the Roca brothers, are proud members of the United Nation Development Program (UNDP) and the Sustainable Development Goals Fund (SDGF). These advocates who believe in ending world hunger have joined forces with not only their organizations, but with notable members of the United Nations to establish Food Africa, which is an attempt to make food more accessible in troubled portions of the world, like Nigeria. These portions suffer from the most hunger–often as the result of not having sufficient food security strategies nor access to markets.
Food Africa has a goal of ending world hunger by 2030. Certainly, a fervent expectation that is deserving of an applause, but curious minds cannot help but wonder how they plan to accomplish this more than difficult goal. Well, their answers are simple: Work to reduce waste, implement food security, educate citizens on sustainability, and eliminate the greed exuded by corporate food chains.
Without a doubt, this goal is something that has tugged at the heartstrings of billions since the realization of world hunger came to be, so it is crucial that citizens of planet earth support this profoundly important cause by playing their role in its success.
