"We need to focus on building a world that people want to live in, where people want to stay, where their life feels worth living—and in order to do that, we need to build a world in which this can happen. People need their needs met. They need affordable and accessible health care, they ...need food and shelter, they need physical and emotional safety, they need connection with other people. They need so many things that too often are unattainable or out of reach, that are made a privilege when they should be a right." via @alyseruriani

Today is #WorldFoodDay, a time meant to bring awareness to food security and the importance of achieving Sustainable Development Goal #2 of Zero Hunger. Now more than ever, we must come together to help those suffering from hunger, and develop sustainable solutions to ensure communities everywhere have access to nutritious food. Research shows that families’ lack of sufficient food, irrespective of their income, is associated with depressive disorders and suicidality in adolescents. Let's change this and build a world worth living in. Check out @fao for ways to get involved and secure #FutureofFood for all. #mentalhealthcoalition
