Food: The Centre of our Lives and Our Futures

by October 21, 2015 1 comment

Food often brings us together – whether it is working to harvest crops, preparing traditional recipes or over joyous celebrations. While what we eat varies, food is a constant across families and across national lines. It is a need we all share, yet something too many go without.

This week, we mark World Food Day, a time to highlight the important role of food in our lives and re-commit to alleviating the hunger and malnutrition that rob millions of their health, potential and even lives each year. This day for action falls just weeks after international leaders adopted new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to guide investment in health and development over the next 15 years. One of the ambitious targets is to end malnutrition and hunger, while increasing focus on sustainable agriculture.
