FAO: World Food Day

FAO: World Food Day | Hunger | Scoop.it
Debra Spielmaker's insight:

“Sustainable Food Systems for Food Security and Nutrition” will be the focus of World Food Day in 2013.

The official World Food Day theme – announced at the start of every year by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) – gives focus to World Food Day observances and helps increase understanding of problems and solutions in the drive to end hunger.

Today almost 870 million people worldwide are chronically undernourished. Unsustainable models of development are degrading the natural environment, threatening ecosystems and biodiversity that will be needed for our future food supply. 

 

A food system is made up of the environment, people, institutions and processes by which agricultural products are produced, processed and brought to consumers.
