Cooking the Manifesto

Food is Life Globe image

Over the last few months, a global community of chefs has been formed with the aim of working together to deliver a better food system for all.

Thus far, chefs have come together to create a Chefs’ Manifesto, a thematic framework that identifies food issues that matter most to chefs that is summarized in 8 thematic areas. A corresponding Action Plan has been developed off of the Manifesto that will act as a practical guide on how chefs can contribute to the SDGs in each of these 8 areas.

This Action Page takes this project one step further by compiling and showcasing recipes created by the participating chefs that are in line with one or more of the Manifesto’s 8 thematic areas into a single database. These recipes will promote ingredients grown with respect for earth and its oceans; the protection of biodiversity and improved animal welfare; the investment in farmer livelihoods; the reduction of waste and valuing of natural resources; the celebration of local and seasonal food; a focus on plant-based ingredients; the education on food safety and healthy diets; nutritious food that is accessible and affordable for all.

Please consider joining us by contributing your recipes and ideas to paul.newnham@wfp.org and we will look to add them to this growing group.
