What is World Food Day? History and significance of World Food Day. Theme of World Food Day 2023

World  Food Day 2023

Every year on 16th October we celebrate World Food Day to raise awareness about hunger and malnutrition around the world.

World Food Day was established in 1979 by the Food and Agriculture Organization to commemorate the founding of the FAO in 1945.

The first World Food Day was celebrated in 1981, and since then, it has  become one of the most widely celebrated international days in the  world.

The theme of World Food Day 2023 is “Water is life, water is food. Leave no one behind, which highlights the vital role of water for food production and security

Water is essential for all life, and it is particularly important for  agriculture. It is used to irrigate crops, water livestock, and process  food.

Millions of people around the world go hungry every day, and many more do not have access to a healthy diet.

Sustainable food systems are those that meet the needs of the present  without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own  needs.

On this World Food Day, we can choose to eat foods that are locally grown and  produced, and we can reduce the amount of food we waste.

World Food Day 2023 reminds us of food security’s importance. We’ve made progress in reducing hunger, but more work remains.
