Celebrating World Food day and exploring Food for Life Get Togethers and bringing generations together through food. We will use this time to host a ‘Food for Life Get Together’ and look at ideas to explore bringing generations together looking at ideas from World Food Day and resources that can help out a Food for Life Get Together on.
Collective action across 150 countries is what makes World Food Day one of the most celebrated days of the UN calendar. Hundreds of events and outreach activities bring together governments, businesses, NGOs, the media, and general public. They promote worldwide awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and for the need to ensure healthy diets for all.
#WorldFoodDay 2021 will be marked a second time while countries around the world deal with the widespread effects of the global Covid-19 pandemic. It’s a time to look into the future we need to build together.
Make #WorldFoodDay your day – share your individual action online or join the call by developing a virtual event or activity.
