“Food is not only about nutrients and calories, but also about sharing, honesty, and identity.”
World Food Day is celebrated every year on October 16 to appreciate the amazing food as well as tackle world hunger, striving hard to eradicate hunger across the world. This day marks the creation of Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations, in 1945.
The food chosen and the way it is consumed affects an individual’s health and that of our planet. Hundreds of events and outreach activities bring together governments, businesses, NGOs, the media, and general public. They promote worldwide awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and for the need to ensure healthy diets for all.
