CAPSC works with stakeholders to stamp out hunger and malnutrition
Goal 2: Zero Hunger
For the past decade, CAPSC has been working towards hunger relief efforts within our local communities. We have organized food drives and donated non-perishable items to local seniors, who are the most vulnerable of them all, and local non-profit social services organizations, such as soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, and the Food Bank for New York City. Throughout the Summer and Fall of 2017, we have been in conversations with Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and entrepreneurs on working towards addressing the root causes of hunger as well as working together to decide long-term and pragmatic solutions, citing the old adage of "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." We also implored SMEs and entrepreneurs to support the United Nations' Zero Hunger Challenge, which was launched by Former United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in 2012 to end malnutrition and hunger. We encourage businesses to demonstrate leadership and coordinate efforts with their employees to stamping out hunger within their communities.
