What we eat and how we cook affects our health and the health of our planet. “Food should not be a threat to sustainability, but a source of sustainable development,” according to the Roca Brothers, who have used this ideal as a key part of their mission to fight poverty as newly appointed UNDP Goodwill Ambassadors to work with the Sustainable Development Goals Fund.
What we eat as well as the methods we choose to cook and harvest our food, affects our individual health and that of our planet. By cooking sustainably we can contribute to the achievement of the sustainable development goals, the world plan for the next 14 years.
In order to achieve the SDGs, we need a better understanding of how people’s food choices affect local sustainability, health and the environment. Putting sustainable cooking at the forefront of change, the Roca Brothers remain eager to spread this important message and explore new approaches to creating more resilient food practices. By changing how we cook, we can contribute to the new 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Issues such as food sourcing, waste reduction and food preparation are areas all linked to food security and must be addressed in order to improve nutritional outcomes.
With this in mind, the Roca Brothers along with the Sustainable Development Goals Fund, we invite you to share your vision as part of our #recipe4change, a global contest for sustainable cooking. To participate just follow these 4 steps:
To participate just follow these 4 steps:
At the end of each month, the Roca Brothers will select and showcase one outstanding #recipe4change. And at the end of the contest, the recipe that best promotes sustainable cooking will be declared the winning #recipe4change.
For each entry received, Ebro Foods will make a contribution to SDG Fund's nutrition projects. This means your recipe will have a direct impact on the lives of people all over the world.
But perhaps in the long term, the best prize for each participant is contributing to advocate for greater food security, healthier diets and a more equitable planet.
