In Budapest, heavy vehicles loaded with 30 tonnes of food donations from 21 Hungarian and international private companies parked on the capital's Heroes' Square. The spectacle unfolded as a press conference on the steps of the Műcsarnok Museum was concluding. This was the 13th World Food Day convoy, staged along with the Hungarian Food Bank Association. Also in central Budapest, prominently displayed World Food Day billboards were seen at several large stations on the city's public transport network. Outside of Budapest, in Miskolc, the city's university celebrated World Food Day with a campaign to collect food for the needy. During the previous weekend, FAO staff boosted the Organization’s visibility by running at the 33rd Spar Marathon.
