World Food Day

The participation of UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, and the President of the Republic of Italy, Sergio Mattarella, in the Ceremony in Expo Milano made it one of the most important events held at the World Exposition.

We received thousands of wonderful drawings this year! Admire and get inspired by the artworks of winners and finalists of this year edition of the Contest.

This year the World Food Day marks the FAO 70th Anniversary too. Visit the website that will take you on a journey through the main events, the leading figures and their endeavours over the past 70 years.
