16th October – World Food Day

The day is celebrated by many organizations concerned with food security.  The theme for this year is Change the future migration. Invest in food security and rural development.

In over 150 countries across the world are organized events to promote awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and for the need to ensure food security and nutritious diets for all.

Hunger, poverty, increased conflict, political instability, and an increase in extreme weather events linked to climate change are important factors contributing to the migration challenge.

In 2015, there were 244 million international migrants, 40% more than in 2000.

  1. So often people overlook the need to feed the hungry right in their own country. We often get focused on the improverished in countries that have little to nothing and forget that there are often people in our own area, our own backyard you could say, who don’t have enough food. We need to look at what we can do to stop wasting food, and look at how we get this food product out to those who are close and need a helping hand

  2. Raising awareness and having the tenacity to repeat the messages over and over is what it takes to make a difference in this magnificent world. It requires a lot of personal energy and drive, but it is so worthwhile. Being part of a “mission” to make this planet a better, HEALTHIER place to live is a blessing to wake up to each morning. 🙂

  3. Thank you for sharing this great post! I think hunger and poverty are two very important issues that many countries are facing, but also struggles to solve the problems. So, I would like to say thank you for raising the awareness these issues 🙂
