World Food Day

World Food Day:

World Food Day is celebrated to commemorate the establishment of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) on 16th October 1945.

  • FAO is a specialised agency of the United Nations that leads international efforts to defeat hunger.
  • As a global community, we each have a role to play in bringing forward those left behind by making our agrifood systems more inclusive and sustainable.
  • Promote worldwide awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and for the need to ensure healthy diets for all.
  • Many awareness initiatives are also held to educate people about malnutrition and obesity, both of which cause major health consequences.
