New York, New York, UNITED STATES NEW YORK, NY, July 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Action Against Hunger , a nonprofit leader in the global movement to end hunger, today announced new headline speakers at  Together Against Hunger , its premiere two-day event, which will be held on October 12-13, 2022 in Washington, D.C. and broadcast to a wider virtual audience online. Notable speakers include Jerry Greenfield,  Ben & Jerry’s  co-founder, and brand ambassador. “I’ve spent much of my life championing social causes, and deeply believe that ending hunger is a cause worth fighting for, since it’s a fight we can’t afford to lose,” said Jerry Greenfield. “I’m really honored to engage with Action Against Hunger and inspired to see so many people come together across sectors to create new approaches to addressing the growing global hunger crisis.” Jerry Greenfield, co-founder and brand ambassador of Ben & Jerry's announced as a featured speaker at Together Against Hunger . The Together Against Hunger movement aims to spark urgent collective action to end hunger through effective alliances at the intersection of possibilities that may include nonprofit practitioners, the private sector, funders, and community members. The event this fall will accentuate ways to amplify successful efforts, engage participants in co-designing new strategies and rethink approaches to funding and action on a range of hunger-related issues. “We are excited that Jerry Greenfield will join us and so many others in shedding a bright light on the urgent issues surrounding global hunger. Jerry has long believed in the importance of shared success and helped pioneer fair trade and organic sourcing for ingredients like vanilla, cocoa, and coffee, which is just one example of the kind of action we need to achieve the UN Sustainable Development goals,“ said Ashwini Kakkar  Chair of Action Against Hunger ’s International Network. “Together the global community has proven that hunger is preventable, not inevitable, yet today hunger is on the rise again. We urgently need to reinvigorate the movement to end hunger for everyone, for good.” The initial slate of speakers includes: activists such as Mwandwe Chileshe, Global Policy Lead, Food Security and Agriculture, Global Citizen nonprofit leaders, including Esther Lupafya, Executive Director, Soils, Food & Healthy Communities (SFHC); Nhlanhla Ndlovu “NN”,  Executive Director, Centre for Economic Governance and Accountability; Nicolas Metro, Founder and CEO, Kinomé and Asma Lateef, Policy and Advocacy Lead (Agriculture), SDG2 Advocacy Hub academics including Rachael Bezner Kerr, Professor of Global Development, Cornell University and Daniel Maxwell, Henry J.

The event builds on insights from a  report  developed by  Devex  and sponsored by Action Against Hunger, which provided insights from more than 860 international NGOs, bilateral donors, corporations, private foundations, and United Nations agencies. The research found that nearly 90% of participants predict that without innovative action, global hunger will continue to rise through 2032. However, two-thirds believe achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) of zero hunger by 2030 is still possible if current approaches change. The event will be broadcast live online.
