This is no ordinary World Food Day, and we need anything but ordinary action. Whether you’re a government, private business, NGO, journalist, city, or a civil society organization, we need you to spread the call for action through activities and events (even online, if COVID-19 health measures advise against physical gatherings). We can provide you with a range of multimedia content in several languages to share, and to support your World Food Day activity.

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.
