Virtual Event, 13/10/2022



Don’t miss the World Food Day event on 13 October!

13 October, 15.00 – 16.00 CEST, virtual event

Year after year, the number of acutely food insecure people has risen relentlessly, despite an increase in humanitarian aid. By treating the symptoms of hunger rather than its causes, we have missed an opportunity to reverse suffering. Doing the same thing the same way is no longer an option. Join us to rethink ways in which we can tackle acute hunger, leaving no one behind.
