October 16 is World Food Day. SO what is World Food Day? According to the website…
World Food Day celebrates the creation of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) on October 16, 1945 in Quebec, Canada. First established in 1979, World Food Day has since then been observed in almost every country by millions of people.
In North America, grassroots events and public awareness campaigns engage diverse audiences in action against hunger. From hunger walks and World Food Day dinners to meal packaging events and food drives, there are many ways for people to be a part of solutions to hunger.
The Theme this year is Family Farming: Feeding the World, Caring for the Earth. So what are you planning to do? The World Food Day has a database of events in the US. Check it out and if you have an event planned, please add it to the map!
