PLANT EAT SHARE
According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, over 820 million people do not have enough to eat. At the same time, every region of the world has an epidemic of overweight and obesity, caused at least in part by unhealthy food.
To achieve UN Sustainable Development Goal 2 – end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture; and Goal 3 – achieve good health – we need radical new thinking and creativity. We need visionaries to propose solutions that are outside bureaucracies and the stronghold of big business.
We need a revolutionary movement of citizens growing healthy food – for free.
Plant Eat Share is a creative effort to encourage growing and/or providing healthy food for free in communities around the world. Change Food will aggregate groups and programs already working in some way to provide healthy food for free to communities, as well as host plantings in designated areas across the US and world. Plant Eat Share will template and encourage other communities to adapt and replicate these programs, as well as to develop new ways to grow and offer food for free. This is being done all in an effort to create a global movement of individuals and groups growing food in their community for all to eat and enjoy.
- Change public mindset around food to one in which healthy food becomes a human right
- Start a global movement locally, with communities implementing Plant Eat Share programs
- Increase public understanding of healthy food and healthy food access
OUR VISION: BUILD AN UNSTOPPABLE GLOBAL MOVEMENT OF PASSIONATE CITIZENS WHO PLANT, EAT AND SHARE HEALTHY FOOD. FOR FREE.
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
Food is a human right. The core ingredients of food – fresh fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds – should not come with a price. Every human being has the right to eat and enjoy healthy, safe, delicious food. Everyone.
Plant Eat Share will address 7 of the 17 UN SDGs. We will bring together an unstoppable force of world citizenry to plant food wherever there is space – for anyone in the community to enjoy.
