World Food Day

Junior World Food Day

Hybrid Event, Rome (Italy), 14/10/2022


FAO headquarters, Friday, 14 October 2022 (14:00 CEST TBC) 

After a successful first edition, Junior World Food Day is back  in October. Join us online for stories and conversation, the launch of the new #FoodHeroes music video, and more. Last year, European Space Agency astronaut and FAO Goodwill Ambassador, Thomas Pesquet surprised us with a message from outer space. This year, he’s back on Earth and will participate alongside other exciting guest speakers including Lebanese media professional and FAO Goodwill Ambassador Darine ElKhatib and Spanish chef and food hero Joan Roca for an event that is guaranteed to inspire action. The event will also feature messages from FAO teams working in countries around the world that are experiencing food crises.   

Visit our Youth page to find out more about how you can become a food hero. Join the poster contest and look through some inspiring material such as the Activity Book series, video animation and music videos to get involved in transforming agri-food systems.
