This year, we will celebrate World Food Day on October 16th, which is celebrated annually in honor of the date of the founding of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 1945. The aim is to promote worldwide awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger, and for the need to ensure food security and nutritious diets for all.  Events are organized in up to 150 countries across the world, making it one of the most celebrated days of the United Nations calendar. The theme this year is Heathy Diets for a zero-hunger world. Achieving Zero Hunger is not only about addressing hunger, but also nourishing people while nurturing the planet. This year, World Food Day calls for action across sectors to make healthy and sustainable diets accessible and affordable to everyone. At the same time, it calls on everyone to start thinking about what we eat.
