World Food Day

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
(FAO) celebrates World Food Day on 16 October, the day on which the
Organization was founded in 1945. Each year it is celebrated by more than 150
countries worldwide.
World Food Day is about Zero Hunger—a Global Goal for the
world to achieve together. We have 15 years to end hunger for every child,
women and man around the world. Reaching it will save countless lives and build
brighter futures for us all. Help us ensure the world does not forget the
promise it has made by sharing #ZeroHunger in
your community.
