The Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) of the UN celebrates World Food Day each year on 16 October to commemorate the founding of the Organization in 1945. Events in over 150 countries are held annually 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. The slogan for World Food Day 2017 is “Change the future of migration. Invest in food security and rural development”.
World Food Day is a chance to show our commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2 – to achieve Zero Hunger by 2030. It’s also a day for us to celebrate the progress we have already made towards reaching #ZeroHunger.
