World Food Day


Right to foods for a better life and a better future  

‘Foods’ stands for diversity, nutrition, affordability, and safety. A greater diversity of nutritious foods should be available in our fields, in our markets, and on our tables, for the benefit of all.

Stay tuned for more information about this year's theme and how to get involved.
