While we currently produce enough food to feed every man, woman, and child in the world, there are nearly 700 million people who are hungry, a number which is growing in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. An increase in threats like pests, plagues, conflict, and climate change are compounding this global food crisis.

To mobilize action and identify solutions to address these threats, we are launching the World Food Forum (WFF) – a youth-led movement and network to transform our food systems to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular "zero hunger".
