SDG 2: Zero Hunger


The second Sustainable Development goal aims to end hunger, achieve food security and improve nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture. Sustainable development in all areas, including health, education, and social development, is contingent upon achieving a world without hunger. Faculty and students at PCGS are committed to researching and promoting sustainable agricultural practices, supporting local farmers and sustainably sourced foods, and fighting food waste locally and globally.
