World Food Day 2016

October 16 was 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 over one-third of food produced worldwide is wasted or lost every year.  The message for World Food Day this year is “Climate is changing. Food and agriculture must too.”

Here is a video about World Food Day.
