World Food Day was established in 1979 by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations to raise public awareness of global food issues and to strengthen efforts to end hunger and malnutrition. This year’s theme, “Climate is Changing: Food and Agriculture Must Too” highlights the threat that changing climate poses to food security. Rising temperatures and increasing extreme weather events are challenging food producers everywhere but especially in the world’s poorest regions. World Food Day is an occasion to focus attention on the need for agriculture to be included in any climate change strategy.
In this crucial year for climate action it is hoped that students and teachers will participate in classroom activities that explore food security and take action on behalf of those without enough nutritious food to lead healthy lives.
