As the human population grows, it is even more important to temper our levels of consumption of the Earth’s dwindling resources, 80-90% percentage of all the calories consumed by humans provided directly or indirectly through livestock feed by wheat, rice, and corn – the big three of 50,000-plus edible plants in the world. Almost half the planet currently lives on less than $2 per day. The land, biodiversity, oceans, forests, and other forms of natural capital are being depleted at unprecedented rates. Unless we change how we grow our food and manage our natural capital, food security, especially for the world’s poorest, will be at risk. (World Bank, 2016) This study aimed to answer the following problems: a) How can Organic Alternatives be implemented/promoted in the Province of La Union; and b.) What are the implications of introducing organic foods among the constituents in the Province of La Union. This action research made use of interview to the residents of La Union. As a result, the researchers came up with an action plan for addressing the SDG number 2 which is entitled zero hunger that focuses on Organic Alternatives for Meal Planning. With the said program, maximization of agricultural products as well as providing education and information on other possible alternatives to solve hunger is a must. The researchers concluded that information dissemination has a huge impact to aid hunger.
