World Food Day
Every year on October 16th, World Food Day is celebrated. Despite any initial assumption that this would be a day to celebrate food, it is actually intended to raise awareness of the millions of people who do not have enough food to live. While we have more than enough food, people in developing countries often starve.
Today we should take a moment to remember all these people and think about what we can do to stop hunger – whether it is a donation to charity, buying dinner for a homeless person or making sure that we do not waste too much of our own food.
Happy World Food Day!
