Fighting Hunger at Every Table

Join leading global plant-based food company Kellogg in taking action and empowering individuals and communities to help fight hunger during a virtual event celebrating World Food Day 2020. 

Register for “Fighting Hunger at Every Table,” on Tuesday, October 13 at 12 p.m. ET, sponsored by Kellogg.

In 2015, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) adopted 17 sustainable development goals designed to transform our world by 2030. The second goal is to end hunger, achieve food security, improve nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture. 

The virtual event will explore the progress we’ve made in the past five years toward achieving UNGA’s goal, the impacts of COVID-19 and climate change on world hunger, and the ways we can work together to create better days for all.

The event will be hosted by Danielle Nierenberg, president of Food Tank. Sessions and speakers include:
