The SDG2 Advocacy Hub facilitates the Chefs’ Manifesto, a community of 1200+ chefs from 92 countries, equipped with a simple set of actions to drive progress towards more sustainable food systems. We believe chefs can be powerful advocates for a better food future – inspiring people to make changes in their kitchens and communities and empowering them to call on governments and companies to also play their part.

Gathering chefs from around the world, the Chefs’ Manifesto aims to profile chefs’ work, shared learnings and best practice as well as empower chefs everywhere to be advocates for a sustainable food system. 

Chefs are at the heart of the global food system. They bridge the gap between farm and fork – influencing what we grow, what we put on our plates and how we think and talk about food. If chefs take a lead on sustainability issues – such as tackling food waste and sustainable sourcing – diners, farmers, business and even government will follow. Through their networks, chefs have the power to curate a global conversation about food and translate the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into accessible, everyday actions in our kitchens, classrooms and communities.
