Mission Statement:

We are a global community of teen changemakers who are empowering each other to eliminate hunger and create food sustainability in our own communities.

Are you fed up with hunger and food waste affecting your community?


Are you fed up with hunger and food waste affecting your community?

At the Zero Hunger Hub, we as young people empower and support each other in building up food sustainability efforts in our schools and neighborhoods. We channel our desire for justice into practically providing equal access to fresh, healthy food for our community members affected by hunger. Our teens pursue local initiatives such as community farms and education campaigns and strive to be an active voice for their community institutions. As the next generation, we know it’s our time to shake up the status quo through local projects that help our community. If you would like to be one of the teens that creates change in their community, register for the Global Co Lab Network New Member Orientation to learn more. All are welcome!

  • An estimated 821 million people were undernourished in 2017.
  • The majority of the world’s hungry people live in developing countries, where 12.9 per cent of the population is undernourished.
  • Sub-Saharan Africa remains the region with the highest prevalence of hunger, with the rate increasing from 20.7 per cent in 2014 to 23.2 per cent in 2017.
  • In sub-Saharan Africa, the number of undernourished people increased from 195 million in 2014 to 237 million in 2017.
  • Poor nutrition causes nearly half (45 per cent) of deaths in children under five – 3.1 million children each year.
  • 149 million children under 5 years of age—22 per cent of the global under-5 population—were still chronically undernourished in 2018.

2.1 By 2030, end hunger and ensure access by all people, in particular the poor and people in vulnerable situations, including infants, to safe, nutritious and sufficient food all year round.

2.2 By 2030, end all forms of malnutrition, including achieving, by 2025, the internationally agreed targets on stunting and wasting in children under 5 years of age, and address the nutritional needs of adolescent girls, pregnant and lactating women and older persons.

2.3 By 2030, double the agricultural productivity and incomes of small-scale food producers, in particular women, indigenous peoples, family farmers, pastoralists and fishers, including through secure and equal access to land, other productive resources and inputs, knowledge, financial services, markets and opportunities for value addition and non-farm employment.

2.4 By 2030, ensure sustainable food production systems and implement resilient agricultural practices that increase productivity and production, that help maintain ecosystems, that strengthen capacity for adaptation to climate change, extreme weather, drought, flooding and other disasters and that progressively improve land and soil quality.

2.5 By 2020, maintain the genetic diversity of seeds, cultivated plants and farmed and domesticated animals and their related wild species, including through soundly managed and diversified seed and plant banks at the national, regional and international levels, and promote access to and fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from the utilization of genetic resources and associated traditional knowledge, as internationally agreed.

2.A Increase investment, including through enhanced international cooperation, in rural infrastructure, agricultural research and extension services, technology development and plant and livestock gene banks in order to enhance agricultural productive capacity in developing countries, in particular least developed countries.

2.B Correct and prevent trade restrictions and distortions in world agricultural markets, including through the parallel elimination of all forms of agricultural export subsidies and all export measures with equivalent effect, in accordance with the mandate of the Doha Development Round.

2.C Adopt measures to ensure the proper functioning of food commodity markets and their derivatives and facilitate timely access to market information, including on food reserves, in order to help limit extreme food price volatility.
