World food day 2021 is celebrated every year all over the world with a view to paying tribute to the founding date of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations in 1945.
People from 150 countries celebrate the day to promote worldwide awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and to show their support for eradicating world hunger.
World Food Day helps to raise nutritional levels across the world, develop agricultural productivity at all stages, improve the lives of rural people and contribute to the growth of the world economy.
This year the theme of World Food Day is “Grow, nourish, sustain. Together. Our actions are our future.”
The food we choose and the way we consume it affect our health and that of our planet. It has an impact on the way agri-food systems work.
