World Food Day is celebrated every year around the world on October 16th in honor of the date of the founding of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 1945. The day is celebrated widely by many other organizations concerned with food security, including the World Food Programme and the International Fund for Agricultural Development
Some 795 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life. That’s about one in nine people on earth.
“we know that a peaceful world cannot long exist,
one-third rich and two-thirds hungry.”
