Grow, nourish, sustain. Together.

As countries around the world suffer the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, #WorldFoodDay is launching a call for global solidarity to help the most vulnerable people to recover and make food systems more sustainable and resilient to shocks.

Our actions are our future.

But the responsibility doesn’t only lie with governments. We all have a role to play, from making food choices that improve both our health and that of our food system, to not letting sustainable habits fall by the wayside.

Stand by for the launch of the new campaign!

This is no ordinary World Food Day, and we need anything but ordinary action. Watch this space as we prepare to publish ideas on how you can participate, take action and call on others to be part of the change.

Whether you’re a government, private business, NGO, journalist, city, or a civil society organization, we can provide you with a range of multimedia content in several languages to share, and to support your World Food Day activity. Contact us if you need more information.

World Food Day – It’s your day!

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.

World Food Day 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of FAO in an exceptional moment as 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.
