This day aims at tackling global hunger and striving to eradicate hunger across the world.
The theme of World Food Day-2021 is "Celebrating Food Heroes". It focuses on individuals who have been building a sustainable world where no one has to stay hungry. The idea is that we all can be food heroes and contribute to the idea of building a hunger-free world. FAO has also highlighted the work of food heroes across the world who are working towards the same aspect.
The theme for World Food Day- 2020 was "Grow, nourish, sustain. Together. Our actions are our future". This theme aimed at the millions of people suffering due to the pandemic.
Starvation is a big problem in a host of countries, particularly in the underdeveloped parts of the world and awareness is required to effectively address this issue. It seems unfair that we live in a global society where one section of the population can enjoy any kind of delicacy it wishes, while a large chunk of the population had to struggle to arrange two meals a day.
FAO tweeted various reasons why we should avoid food wastage :
Happy World Food Day!
