World Food Day 2020

Founded in 1945 to unite all nations in the fight against hunger, FAO celebrates its birthday on the 16th of October, through a global celebration known as World Food Day. Today, more than 130 countries come together to honour their common goal: a world free from hunger and poverty, in which everyone can lead healthy lives.
The Zero Hunger Goal is at the heart of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to be achieved by 2030.

ZERO HUNGER is the second of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), supported by Haifa Group, all UN organizations, private companies, and citizens from around the world are working hard to achieve the 17 goals by 2030, starting with poverty and hunger.

Many exciting programmes have been launched as part of this mission, and most of them are aimed at families and small communities. Almost every action involves education and the sharing of information and technology. Studying is the best way to learn how to utilise resources and improve people’s lives. Every single ingredient adds to the final recipe! But studying isn’t enough, we have to turn our ideas into actions.

The Zero Hunger mission aims to reduce that staggering figure down to ZERO,
by taking these measurements:

1. Food security: to guarantee access to healthy food for everyone, every day. Our Earth is capable of feeding us all: it’s down to human beings to distribute food fairly, leaving no one empty-handed!

2. Good nutrition: to make sure that people get all the nutrients they need to live well, and encourage responsible, environmentally-friendly eating habits. This will restore the balance between those who eat too much or badly, and those who don’t get enough food.

3. Sustainable agriculture: the use of fields, forests, oceans, and all natural resources essential for food production, without damaging the planet. Sustainable, because food production has to respect the environment, with all the people and animals who live in it or our resources will not last!

4. Poverty eradication: since poverty is often the direct cause of malnutrition, even in countries where food is available in supermarkets. People who can’t afford healthy food, or food in general, tend to get ill more easily. Basically, a healthy lifestyle is the result of social and economic progress!
