World Food Day 2022 – Leave No One Behind

Each year, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) celebrates World Food Day on 16 October to commemorate is founding in 1945. Hundreds of events and outreach activities bring together governments, businesses, nongovernmental organizations (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.

Today 3.1 billion people around the world still cannot afford a healthy diet. Famine and malnutrition are leading to loss of lives and putting at risk a healthy future for our children. But ending hunger isn’t only about supply. Enough food is produced today to feed everyone on the planet.

The problem is access and availability of nutritious food, which is increasingly impeded by multiple challenges including the COVID-19 pandemic, conflict, climate change, inequality, rising prices and international tensions. People around the world are suffering the domino effects of challenges that know no borders. So this theme encourages people and governments around the world to focus on solving these challenges.

Now, more than ever, we need to harness the power of solidarity and collective actions. To honour our pledge to leave no one behind, it is critical that we transform our agrifood systems to be more efficient, more inclusive, more insistent, and more sustainable for better production, better nutrition, a better environment and a better life for all.

Our actions can lead to: better production, better nutrition, a better environment, and a better life. Every one of us can work towards an inclusive and sustainable future, showing greater empathy and kindness in our actions. We must all be the change.

Eight billion people – one agrifood system. Let’s build a world with more and good quality food for all.
