Our Goal
Our goal is to achieve food security for all and make sure that people have regular access to enough high-quality food to lead active, healthy lives. With over 194 member states, FAO works in over 130 countries worldwide. We believe that everyone can play a part in ending hunger.

Join us in creating a #ZeroHunger world.

Having spent three weeks in Europe, touring Portugal, Spain, Italy, Croatia, Montenegro and Greece, Dave and Ina had the opportunity to speak to the locals, eat their delicious food and walk through amazing, centuries old architecture - realizing once again that people are the same everywhere, with the same needs, desires and feelings.

Our good friend, Jennifer Gee, works with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in Rome. She took us through the lovely UN building where we discussed the 17 sustainable development goals and how they tie in to the GreenAngels website platform. 

As we stood on the rooftop and looked out over the glory that is Rome, Jen spoke about her work with small scale fisheries around the world. Last year she attended the 6th Global Symposium on Gender in Aquaculture and Fisheries in Norway, where researchers and other interested parties gathered to discuss how the fishing industry could be strengthened by bringing in gender and especially women’s perspectives. “Fishing, aquaculture, and related industries make up the livelihood for as much as ten to twelve per cent of the world’s population. And half of these people are women,” said Jen at the conference.
