The food you choose and the way you consume it affect our health and that of our planet.
It has an impact on the way agri-food systems work.
And you need to be part of the change.
Behind our food, there is always someone who produced, planted, harvested, fished or transported it. On World Food Day, we thank #FoodHeroes who, no matter the circumstances, continue to provide food to their communities and beyond.
Stay tuned for the release of new stories about heroes across the agri-food system and tips on how you can follow a food hero lifestyle.
Calling all children and teens around the world! If you’re between the ages 5 to 19, we want you to use your imagination and create a poster showing a food journey! There are many different kinds of journeys that food can take, some that guarantee a healthier future for people and the planet. Choose your favourite and be creative!
Collective action across 150 countries is what makes World Food Day one of the most celebrated days of the UN calendar. Hundreds of events and outreach activities bring together governments, businesses, 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.
#WorldFoodDay 2021 will be marked a second time while countries around the world deal with the widespread effects of the global Covid-19 pandemic. It's a time to look into the future we need to build together.
Make #WorldFoodDay your day - share your individual action online or join the call by developing a virtual event or activity.
