Tonight, 690 million people around the world could go to sleep without a meal. Tomorrow, it might be more.
The food insecurity crisis is accelerating. Now, in the midst of a global pandemic, our nation and the world are desperately in need of systemic change.

These are not isolated issues that impact only the most vulnerable among us. These are collective, societal problems with deep roots in economic and social inequality. Every one of us will feel the ripple effects of this crisis, from increasing health care costs to declining economic mobility. With nearly one in three people already suffering from at least one form of malnutrition, we can no longer afford to continue business as usual. To make real progress, each one of us must do our part: in every region, every city, every community—and leave no one behind.
The Healthy Living Coalition will drive progress under the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals with a focus on Goal 2: Zero Hunger.
