To contribute to the UN Food Systems Summit, the Faith + Food Coalition hosted five separate interfaith, multi-stakeholder dialogues corresponding to each of the five Action Tracks. The objective of the dialogues was to explore how faith communities - including Indigenous communities - can support the transformation of global food systems to being sustainable, accessible, equitable, and regenerative. From those dialogues, FFC created an Interfaith Statement to reflect the principles and Calls to Action laid out by our speakers. Join us as we announce the statement, and hear feedback and reflections from dialogue speakers and FFC members

This is a make-or-break year to secure meaningful commitments in addressing the climate crisis and putting our food systems on a sustainable path before it's too late. A key part of such a transformation will need a step change in agricultural innovation to support ambitious action. But how can stakeholders across the food system join forces to ensure agricultural innovation contributes to climate mitigation and adaptation and support more resilient communities?This UN Food Systems Summit side-event as part of the official program of Climate Week NYC will debate an emerging ‘Action Agenda for Innovation in Agriculture’ (aka the #ClimateShot) that will be launched at COP26. The event is hosted by CCAFS, the UK's Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, and Columbia Climate School.

Where do the most influential global food and agriculture companies stand in transforming the food system for a sustainable future? Find out at the launch of WBA’s Food and Agriculture Benchmark, which has assessed 350 companies from across the value chain on their environmental, nutritional and social impact.Launching alongside the UN Food Systems Summit (UNFSS), it is a critical moment in addressing the interconnectedness of food systems to global challenges such as hunger, climate change, poverty and inequality. This event will feature a presentation of the benchmark results, a pre-recorded interview with Dr. Agnes kalibata with speakers from the private sector (Unilver, OCP), GAIN, WBCSD, a Rome-based agency, a coffee farmer, youth climate activist and more. We aim to shine a light on the opportunities and challenges of private sector performance and identify ways for stakeholders to motivate and accelerate private sector impact, in relation to the actions of the UNFSS.

COVID-19 wiped out 15 years of progress in reducing hunger globally. Investing $33bn MORE per year can reverse this trend and end hunger for good. The ground-breaking Ceres2030 report - reinforced by the PARI and SOFI reports - draws a ten-year roadmap to reverse the downward hunger spiral and has emerged from the UN Food Systems Summit’s Coalition of Action for Zero Hunger. A world without hunger is possible and governments cannot do it alone. More private sector investment is needed, so we’re looking to the private sector to do their part and also inspire other players to act.The Launch of Zero Hunger, Private Sector Pledge will welcome the first champions of the pledge. We will hear how they are partnering with governments, donors, global and local institutions to drive more effective private investments and how their pledges will contribute to national food systems pathways.The pledge is being supported by a network of partners including the Global Alliance for Improved Nutriti

The UNFSS has generated widespread understanding of the need for a food systems multistakeholder approach to thinking and acting when it comes to food. The UNFSS process has helped to identify the choices each one of us can make --about how we grow, move, process, acquire, use, prepare and consume food-- can bend our futures towards nourishing people and planet in peace and prosperity. Decision makers can positively shape our food systems by beginning now to make the right choices. Youth are most affected by today’s choices and yet they have the least say in those choices. That must change. Youth must have a leading role in shaping fair, sustainable and equitable food systems, owing to their future and influence. What we do or dont do over the next 5-10 years will determine the next thousands. The future is youth, and food is the future.
