Youth Ambassador Program
The time to act is now
The UN has stated a goal of ‘Zero Hunger by 2030’ (UN Sustainable Development Goals) – the truth is, right now, we are very far away from the realisation of this goal. 150 Million more people faced hunger in 2021 than in the previous year and 8% of the world’s population is projected to still face hunger by 2030 (UN 2021). The situation is desperate and the time to act is now.
At Mary’s Meals, we believe that young people are innovators, culture shapers and agents of change who will find solutions to the global issues of hunger, poverty and injustice. We believe that you can be the generation which brings us closer to the realisation of ‘Zero Hunger by 2030’ and a different future to the world we are living in.

Zero Hunger: how it happened
“Finding and supporting a good cause is the thing you must get right. If you want to do something good, think of an idea and look for the right organisation and the right people for it. Organise something that is fun and you feel comfortable undertaking. Then you can use your drive to do good things and have a positive impact on others”
Denis Holub, 16, Germany, Youth Ambassador
