October 16 - World Food Day
The day is about recognizing the worldwide problem of hunger. And this year the theme for the day is “Sustainable Food Systems for Food Security and Nutrition”. The theme has been chosen to highlight and raise awareness of the problems worldwide and the solutions to food security and ridding the world of hunger. The day is also about raising awareness and calling for changes to our agriculture and food supply systems.
However, it is not just about donating healthy food to the world's hungry and undernourished peoples. Like some vegetable soup recipe for feeding and any other food that can be serve to the people who needed it. It is about doing something to help them help themselves. If I was hungry and someone gave me a plough to farm my land I would be far more grateful than if they gave me a sack of potatoes. If I had a plough I could be self-sufficient and produce my own appetizer recipes. That is what the day is trying to encourage. The Food and Agriculture Organisation is a division of the United Nations, and is responsible for World Food Day. Along with raising awareness of hunger and poverty, the day aims to encourage economic and technological cooperation between different governments and with non-governmental organisations.
