World Food Day, 16 October 2018

COMING SOON

With hunger and obesity on the rise, World Food Day 2018 will send out a worldwide call to get back on track towards achieving Zero Hunger. We will show countries, decision makers, companies and corporations, civil society - and YOU – how by taking action and working together, we can achieve #ZeroHunger by 2030. Stand by for the launch of the new campaign!

Now is the time to get back on track.
The world can achieve Zero Hunger if we join forces across nations, continents,  sectors and professions, and act on evidence.

 

 

Whether you’re a business, NGO, journalist, media agency, city, or a civil society organization, you can call for action on Zero Hunger! Plan a World Food Day event or spread the word, and let us know if you need our help.

We’re calling on children and teens all over the world, from age 5 to 19, to use their imagination and create a poster that illustrates their idea of Zero Hunger. 

While 815 million people suffer chronic hunger, 1.3 billion are overweight and a further 600 million are obese.
