World Food Day

World Food Day

World Food Day is celebrated on the 16 October annually as a key international day of awareness and action dedicated to tackling food hunger.

"Our actions are our future- Better production, better nutrition, a better environment and a better life" is the theme for World Food Day 2021.

The world has set a challenge to achieve Zero Hunger and better nutrition by 2030. But governments can’t do it alone - everyone has a role to play.
