Sport can serve as a catalyst for achieving all 17 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. It is poised, however, to make a unique impact on Goal 2, which aims to “end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture”. Sport programmes associated with nutrition and agriculture can complement programmes that tackle hunger and support education. Beneficiaries can be educated and engaged in sustainable food production and balanced diets. The spirit of sport is linked to the nutrition and wellness of a community or individual; this connection between sport and health can be used to highlight inefficiencies in the global food supply chain.
