WORLD FOOD DAY 2021
World Food Day is celebrated every year around the world on the 16th October; the date that the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FOA) was founded in 1945. First commemorated by the FOA in 1979, World Food Day aims to promote healthy diets and eradicate hunger issues by 2030.
World Food Day adopts a new theme every year, with previous themes including Family Farming (2014) and Our Actions are our Future (2018).
The theme for 2021 is ‘Safe food today for a healthy tomorrow’ which stresses that production and consumption of safe food have “immediate and long-term benefits for people, the planet, and the economy.”
Beatlie will be raising awareness by participating in a poster competition – keep an eye out for the great work our pupils will produce!
