World Food Day Event 2020
“Grow, Nourish, Sustain. Together. Our Actions are our Future”

With events organized in over 150 countries around the world, #WorldFoodDay is one of the most celebrated days in the UN calendar. They promote worldwide awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and for the need to ensure healthy diets for all. This year’s theme is “Grow, nourish, sustain. Together. Our actions are our future”. As countries are dealing with the widespread effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, World Food Day 2020 will call on countries to build more resilient and robust food systems and for global solidarity to help all populations, and especially the most vulnerable to recover from the crisis. We celebrate #FoodHeroes, farmers and workers throughout the food system, who are making sure that food makes its way from farm to table despite these challenging times.

On 16 October, Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Liaison Office in Japan, jointly with International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and World Food Programme (WFP) Japan Relations Office, will organize an online event, mainly for the Japanese audience. With the attendance of the three Rome-based agencies working in the area of food and agriculture, the event will discuss ways to realize a world free from hunger and malnutrition and to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The panel discussion will be moderated by Ms Hiroko Kuniya, a newscaster and FAO National Goodwill Ambassador for Japan, followed by a Q&A session. Mr Katsuhiro Nakamura, French chef and FAO National Goodwill Ambassador for Japan, will deliver remarks at the end of the event.
