Understanding the struggles societies face, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has decided to observe 16th October annually as the World Food Day. The day is widely used as a channel for creating solidarity among a variety of stakeholders nationally and internationally. It is a drive for these stakeholders to work together to eradicate hunger and malnutrition, especially in developing countries where poverty is high. The day is also used as a tool to educate societies on the roots of global hunger and methods to end it.
The theme for this year's World Food Day is, "Sustainable Food Systems for Food Security and Nutrition". This theme focuses on finding out and achieving progressive agricultural development that has sustainability in food security for future generations. Many members of society have unhealthy diets that create health complications. It needs to be understood that it is not about the quantity of food but it is about the quality of food that people eat.
