World Food Day

Children's Activity Book

We are all connected! From our food to our cultures, environment and economies, we live in a globalized world. Climate change, conflict and inequality can often leave groups of people behind because of who they are or where they live. Building a better, more sustainable future for all means no one can be left behind.

Find out how you can take action and be part of the change with the World Food Day Activity Book.



FAO’s Activity Book Series offers children a chance to engage with global issues in a fun and educational way.
