World Food Day 2017

October 16 was World Food Day, a day to spread awareness about the world’s hunger problems and to think about food security and nutritious diets for all. 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, the world produces enough food to feed everyone, and yet, there are over 800 million hungry people in the world. The message for World Food Day this year is “Change the future of migration. Invest in food security and rural development.”  Here is a video about World Food Day.
