Goal Two: End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture.
The San Diego Region is unique in the United States as it is home to large metropolitan areas and to a large agricultural sector. San Diego County has the 19th largest farm sector among all U.S. counties. SANDAG is working to balance the needs of the vital industry along with the region's ongoing population growth through implementation of the 2021 Regional Plan. SANDAG is not alone in these efforts. Other groups such as San Diego County Food Vision 2030 and the San Diego Farm Bureau are working to support agriculture and ensure that all in our region have food security.
By 2030, end hunger and ensure access by all people—in particular people in poverty and vulnerable situations, including infants—to safe, nutritious, and sufficient food all year round.
Prevalence of undernourishment.
Prevalence of moderate or severe food insecurity in the population, based on the Food Insecurity Experience Scale (FIES).
Proportion of population with access to fresh fruits and vegetables in neighborhood, by local agency.
By 2030, end all forms of malnutrition, including by 2025 achieving the internationally agreed targets on stunting and wasting in children under 5 years of age and addressing the nutritional needs of adolescent girls, pregnant, lactating women, and older persons.

Prevalence of malnutrition (weight for height >+2 or <-2 standard deviation from the median of the WHO Child Growth Standards) among children under 5 years of age, by type (wasting and overweight).
By 2030, double the agricultural productivity and incomes of small-scale food producers—in particular women, indigenous peoples, family farmers, pastoralists, and fishers—through secure and equal access to land, other productive resources and inputs, knowledge, financial services, markets, and opportunities for value addition and non-farm employment.
