Hunger and Nutrition
01 Hunger and Nutrition
Even though our Planet has provided vast resources, reasons like unequal access and poor distribution systems have led to malnourishment among large populations. To end hunger is among the UN’s most well-defined Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It is targeted at achieving food security and better nutrition besides promoting sustainable agriculture. The Global DLC Social Impact Community vows to align itself to this Cause and end hunger wherever it exists in the world by helping build rural infrastructure, support agricultural research and build plant and livestock gene banks to enhance agricultural production
Alternative proteins and the future of food
02 Alternative proteins and the future of food
To address the harmful contribution of global animal agriculture towards climate change, anti-microbial resistance and environmental degradation, the Global DLC Social Impact Community is committed to the cause of making alternative proteins accessible and affordable including plant and cell-based animal product alternatives
Sustainable Agricultural practices
03 Sustainable Agricultural practices
From permaculture to agroforestry, mixed faming to crop rotation, sustainable agriculture is all about taking up environment-friendly methods of farming. The DLC Social Impact Community works with NGOs and local agencies for investments in the required infrastructure to preserve and restore critical habitats, protect watersheds and improve the health of the soil and retain water quality. The larger aim of the Community is to help limit global warming.
Tens of millions have joined the ranks of the chronically undernourished over the past 6 years, and countries around the world continue to struggle with multiple forms of malnutrition, according to the United Nations
Who can help
NGOs engaged in disaster management and food distribution, NPOs involved in food-related enterprises, charities, foundations and individuals working locally channeling unused food to those who are in need, educational institutions researching alternative proteins and more efficient agricultural practices
What can you do
Organisations can partner to reach the farthest corners of the world to limit the number of people who go without food, sensitise people to the plight of those who go without food; contribute resources in emergencies
The key obstacles to achieve the UN SDG of Zero Hunger is the high cost of nutritious foods and the low affordability of healthy diets for over 3 billion people. A majority of them are in sub-Saharan Africa and southern Asia, but no region, including North America and Europe, is spared. Let’s bring the goal back on track. #DLCSocialImpact

The National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference is co-sponsored by the Food Research & Action Center and Feeding America. It draws anti-hunger and anti-poverty advocates; federal, state and local government officials; child advocates; representatives of food banks and food rescue organisations, nutrition and anti-obesity groups. The 3-day event is packed with interactive training and content-rich sessions to strengthen the quality and reach of federal nutrition programs and fill the gaps in food service for millions of low-income children to identify innovative approaches to end hunger.
