World Food Day

After a successful first edition, the Junior World Food Day will be celebrated for a second time this October. 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 join other exciting guest speakers for an event packed with fun and guaranteed to inspire action! 

Stay tuned for more details. 

Every year, a large number of events – from marathons and hunger marches, to exhibitions, cultural performances, contests and concerts – are organised in around 150 countries across the world to celebrate World Food Day.

Whether you’re a business, NGO, journalist, government, city, civil society organization or individual, take advantage of this opportunity to call for action!

Plan a World Food Day event online or in person, or spread the word on your channels, and let us know if you need our help. We can provide you with a range of promotional materials in several languages – from posters to brochures, event banners and youth content.
