World Food Day 2015

October 16 is World Food Day, a day to spread awareness about the world’s hunger problems and to rethink the food production methods used globally. The World Food Day is celebrated annually and was started in 1979 by the United Nations’ Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO). According to the FAO, there are over 800 million hungry people in the world, and yet approximately one-third of the total food produced for human beings is wasted every year. Here is a video about World Food Day.
