World Food Day Official Celebration 2022 North America

12 waiting Scheduled for Oct 16, 2022 This year, #WorldFoodDay is marked in a year where the world faces profound food security challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, environmental degradation, biodiversity loss, compounded by inequality and armed conflicts. The world needs to take action.

With the theme ‘Leave no one behind. Better production, better nutrition, a better environment, and a better life,’ the World Food Day 2022 campaign calls for global solidarity and action to transform agrifood systems in a bid to foster inclusive economic growth, address inequalities, increase resilience, and achieve sustainable development.
