// 002 FOOD SECURITY

We saved Tokyo. Now it's your turn.
More than one billion people go hungry every day.
This week, your mission is to change at least one of those lives.
You have the power to increase someone's food security -- wherever you are.

WHAT IS FOOD SECURITY?

Food security exists
when all people, at all times,
have physical and economic access
to sufficient, safe and nutritious food
for a healthy and active life.
— World Food Summit 1996

Food security isn't about providing temporary help or a single meal.
It's about creating local, sustainable food systems -- in every village, town, city and nation on Earth.

I want my EVOKE agents to find long-term solutions to the hunger we have today -- and to help prevent global food shortages in the future.

Your mission this week:
Join the effort to help every single person on Earth get access to safe, nutritious food.

FOOD SECURITY GOALS:

  • Develop just, sustainable, and diverse food systems
  • Meet the food needs of everyone, especially people living in poverty
  • Promote good nutrition and health
  • Revitalize local communities
  • Build self-reliance and collaboration
  • Link farmers and consumers
  • Support sustainable and family-scale farming
  • Promote good working conditions and sustainable livelihoods for farmers and food system workers
