World Food Day
World Food Day promotes global awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and for the need to ensure healthy diets for all. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) designated 16 October as World Food Day in 1979.
The United Nation Organisation’s Food and Agriculture Association (FAO) was established on 16th October in 1945. To commemorate this day, World Food Day is celebrated every year with a new theme. The objective is to create awareness about the existing problems of obesity and malnutrition due to hunger.
Like every year, the World Food Day will be celebrated on the 16th of October 2020, which falls on a Friday. The theme has not been revealed yet. The World Food Day 2019 theme was ‘Zero Hunger’.
One of the best ways to celebrate World Food Day is by donating food to people who need it the most. You can also spread awareness about nutrition and healthy habits of eating. Maintaining a proper diet and avoiding health issues like diabetes and obesity.
World Food Day (WFD) was established by FAO’s Member Countries at the Organization’s 20th General Conference in November 1979.
