WORLD FOOD DAY

So while we're engaging as food bloggers and bloggers generally we can also give out food to those in need. I suggest food bloggers in different states team up and organize free food fair for the needy around their communities.... This isn't restricted to food bloggers...

Best Days are Food Days! Lol…. #WorldFoodDay is celebrated yearly on the 16th of October, and this year the United Nations is calling for everyone to work towards #ZeroHunger

How can we do this? How can we get involved?

“Governments need to invest in Zero Hunger and put the right policies in place to target rural populations, promote pro-poor investment and growth and address rising
overweight and obesity levels through better nutrition. Citizens need to adopt a new mindset by supporting local producers, using the Earth’s resources more wisely, following nutritious and varied diets, and changing day-to-day actions with the aim of reducing waste and taking on a more sustainable lifestyle.

awfdaySmallholder farmers need to adopt new, sustainable agricultural methods to increase productivity and income. This will enable them to mitigate risks and be more resilient to shocks. They should diversify their crops and reduce post-harvest losses.Vulnerable rural populations need to empower themselves by uniting and forming local cooperatives to realize their right to adequate food and decent employment, and share knowledge about sustainable agriculture.The private sector should become a key ally in achieving Zero Hunger.

The financial sector needs to put financial tools in the hands of economically marginalized
communities. The food and beverage sector should eliminate food loss and waste and strive for better food safety standards. All corporations need to use or acquire
land responsibly, be resource efficient and find ways to source locally and responsibly.Innovators can share knowledge and new digital tools with farmers and the media can leverage their reach to educate the public about a Zero Hunger lifestyle.Youth around the world can also become change makers and advocates for Zero Hunger.”
