The World Food Day is celebrated throughout the world on 16 th October every year.
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations was founded on that day in the year 1945, and in 1980, the General Assembly endorsed observance of the Day in consideration of the fact that "food is a requisite for human survival and well-being and a fundamental human necessity"
The World Food Day and Tele Food theme for 2007 is "The Right to Food".The right to food is the inherent human right of every woman, man, girl and boy, wherever they live on this planet.The choice of The Right to Food as the theme for 2007 World Food Day and TeleFood demonstrates increasing recognition by the international community of the important role of human rights in eradicating hunger and poverty.
Food is a basic human right, but millions of people in the world still go hungry every day and deaths due to hunger occur very frequently in the world. Hunger not only kills people, but it also takes away the ability to work and learn. According to the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO), hunger ‘undermines the peace and prosperity of nations and traps individuals in a vicious cycle of poor nutrition, ill health and diminished capacity for learning and work that is passed on from one generation to the next.’
On this World Food Day, we may find ways to fight hunger and poverty by innovative steps such as providing food to the hungry and poor people, in celebrations of marriages and other functions like birthdays, milestone birthdays, marriage anniversaries and death anniversaries etc.
Also in functions and parties the left over food may be arranged to to distributed to the hungry and poor people.
