More than 130 chefs from 38 countries have cooked up an action plan that supports the UN Sustainable Development Goals – especially number 2: to zero hunger.

The Chefs’ Manifesto Action Plan – an initiative from the SDG2 Advocacy Hub – was officially launched at the EAT Stockholm event this month. It is an open community where chefs are encouraged to get involved in a number of ways, like contributing a recipe to Cooking the Manifesto.

“We need to start a new global conversation about food: An engaging, inclusive movement that will inspire people to come to the table and take action. And we see chefs at the centre of this conversation,” the SDG2 Advocacy Hub website states. “Chefs bridge the gap between the farm and the fork – transforming raw ingredients into delicious, nutritious meals. In doing so, they influence what we grow, what we put on our plates and how we think and talk about food.

“We think chefs can be powerful advocates for a better food future – inspiring people to make changes in their kitchens and communities and empowering them to call on governments and companies to also play their part.”

So if you’re a chef – join the community.
