World Food Day

Food is one of the essential requirements for the sustenance of life. Humans would be able to survive without clothes and shelter, but they can't survive without food. World Food Day is celebrated every year on October 16. It marks the founding day of the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO). The day is observed to raise awareness about the importance of food and nutrition. Over two billion people do not have regular access to safe, nutritious and sufficient food. The day aims to raise awareness about the problem of hunger across the world.
