Around 815 million people around the world suffer from malnourishment. Today, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations is celebrating World Hunger Day (FAO). What is FAO’s goal? They hope to achieve #ZeroHunger by 2030 with the help from businesses, farmers, governments, and everyday people.
How can you help out today? Here are a few simple suggestions that FAO gives in order to help the organization’s efforts to combat hunger around the world.
- Don’t Waste Food – If you don’t finish a meal, save it for later and put it in the refrigerator or freezer. You can also use some of the ingredients that you had to make another meal.
- Produce More, With Less – FAO suggests that farmers find a productive way to farm food and grow their crops. They could be finding a more integrated system to cultivate and sell their crops.
- Diet – Try to fit in nutritious meals and recipes to cook on your own. Focus on making foods with fruits and vegetables and ensuring that you get the right amount of nutritious vitamins you need in your diet.
- Advocate for FAO by using #ZeroHunger – Social media plays a big role in how messages from campaigns are spread. Businesses, organizations, institutions, etc. need to partner and work together to develop and come up with strategies within the organization. Promote #ZeroHunger through your social media platforms and talk about initiatives your organization is taking to help with this message.
