World Food Day - What is your star ingredient?

Beans. An everyday ingredient – but they have an extraordinary power.

That’s because they’re an example of good food. They’re accessible to people worldwide, they’re nutritious, and they’re full of potential – they bring people together, and they fuel our futures.

Our new film for World Food Day tells that story. Beans are just one of the world’s star ⭐️ ingredients – what are yours? Celebrate #WorldFoodDay and #GoodFood4All by telling us on social media.

#FoodSystems4SDGs countdown to the Summit

With the UN Food Systems Summit fast approaching on September 23 we’re kicking off a #FoodSystems4SDGs countdown – 17 days to highlight how transforming our food systems can help the world achieve critical progress on all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)! 

The myriad ways in which we produce, process, and consume food—our food systems—touch every aspect of human existence. Running from September 6 - 22, the countdown campaign will unpack one SDG per day to highlight the relationship between better food systems and making progress across all of the SDGs to build a resilient world where no one is hungry, no one is poor, and no one is left behind. And we want your help to spread this important message on social media. 

Join the #FoodSystems4SDGs conversation, champion an SDG, and be a #FoodSystemsHero with our social media toolkit!
