World Food Day is celebrated every year on 16 October around the world. Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 1945 founded.
The World Food Day (WFD) event was established to increase awareness of world hunger and poverty and to inspire solutions for world change.
Don’t waste food
- Roughly 1/3 food produced in the world for human consumption every year — approximately 1.3 billion tonnes — gets lost or wasted.
- Food losses and waste amounts to roughly US$ 680 billion in industrialized countries and US$ 310 billion in developing countries.
- Fruits and vegetables, plus roots and tubers have the highest wastage rates of any food.
Wasting less, eating better and adopting a sustainable lifestyle are key to building a world free of hunger.
