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, ‘Grow Nourish Sustain Together’ calls for a global effort to help all countries , especially those most vulnerable to recover from the COVID crisis and to make food systems more reliable and resilient. Government, the private sector and civil society need to make sure that our food systems grow a variety of food to nourish a growing population and sustain the planet, together.
It is hoped that students and teachers will mark World Food Day by participating in classroom activities that explore key food –related issues and take action to support those who do not have physical and/or economic access to the types of nutritious food required for healthy lives.
