Every year 16th October is observed as World Food Day. This day is observed to mark the date of the Food and Agriculture Organization which was founded in 1945.
World Food Day makes us feel the privilege of how lucky we are to have variety of foods. But at the same time, it makes us realize about the problems around us. The problems such as starvation, food crisis etc. are some of the major issues in today’s era. From the celebration of this day people would be aware of what the importance of food is and despite wasting it we could keep it for further use or donate it to the people in need.
This day is also celebrated to raise awareness about healthy food and its importance in day to day life. As our life is getting hectic day by day, people should be more keen on focusing on the proper or healthy diet which will be done by accepting healthy food in our day to day lifestyle.
There are many organizations like the International Fund for Agricultural Development, the World Food Program etc. who celebrate this day and make people aware of the above stated reasons.
World Food Day is just a reminder to all those privileged people that there are still an uncountable number of people around the world who are not yet privileged enough to have meals three times a day and also to make our lifestyle better and healthy.
