World Food Day
Celebrated annually on 16 October, World Food Day serves as an opportunity to raise awareness and take actions for those who suffer from hunger and the need to provide healthy diets for all.
The food we choose and the way we produce, prepare, cook, and store has an impact on how our agri-food systems work. This year World Food Day calls for collective actions towards building more efficient, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable agri-food systems for “Better Production, Better Nutrition, a Better Environment and a Better Life,” leaving no one behind.
As a global community, we each have a role to play in the transformation of agri-food systems – from governments to private companies, farmers, civil society, academia, and all individuals, including youth! Together we can empower each element of our agri-food systems to collaborate more fairly, sustainably, and inclusively from farm to table, and beyond.
