World Food Day

Significance and celebration of World Food Day

The World Food Day has traditionally been the day aiming for food security for all. Numerous outreach activities are organized where NOGs, governments, businesses, media, and the general lot come together to contribute and help the malnourished. The hopes are on a ZeroHunger world, where no child has to go to bed on an empty stomach, and no parent has to cry for not being able to feed their children.

Over the years, the global event has also simultaneously focused on nutrition, healthy diets, and sustainability to fight against obesity, a yet another plague in human lives. In over 150 countries, the day now also promotes nutritious diets and a healthy lifestyle. It calls for global solidarity to build more resilient food systems and help those in crisis.

How to celebrate World Food Day

There are a number of different events that take place on World Food Day, so it is worth looking into these to see if there is anything going on in your local area. This includes everything from concerts and contests to cultural performances, exhibitions, hunger marches, and marathons. With so many large profile events taking place, you are bound to find something that appeals to you! And if there isn’t anything going on in your local area, why not be the person to host the event?

One of the best ways to celebrate World Food Day is by giving food to people who need it the most. If you do a quick search online, you should be able to find the nearest food bank to you. Most food banks are going to accept food or money. The sort of food that is in a typical food parcel includes biscuits, tinned fruit, tea, coffee, tinned vegetables, tinned meat, beans, pasta sauce, rice, pasta, soup, and cereal. You could also volunteer your time, food banks are often looking for willing volunteers. No matter how much time you have to spare, we are sure that it will be appreciated.
