October 16th annually
“Collective action across 150 countries is what makes World Food Day (WFD) one of the most celebrated days of the United Nations’ (UN) calendar. Hundreds of events and outreach activities bring together governments, businesses, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), the media, and general public. They promote worldwide awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and for the need to ensure healthy diets for all.” (FAO World Food Day 2020 Toolkit for Educators and Youth)
“World Food Day 2020 marked the 75th anniversary of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in an exceptional moment as countries around the world deal with the widespread effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s a time to look into the future we need to build together. Make #WorldFoodDay your day – share our messages, your actions or develop an activity, even if it has to be virtual.” (FAO World Food Day 2020 Toolkit for Educators and Youth)
