World Food Day – 16th October
Posted by LibeRaCe on October 16, 2007
World Food Day has been celebrated each year by the UN since 1945. This years theme is ‘The Right to Food’
They would like people to hold a worldwide candle lit vigil on the 22nd Oct – could you be the one to organize it here??
You could also have a look at the United Nations, the International Fund for Agricultural Development and the World Food Programme websites for more background information on current world situation. Each website also has alot of reports and useful resources you can download for free.
Find resources about this topic in the library at 330.9/337/338.9/641.53 and in Understanding Global Issues magazine.
Pssst – Don’t forget its United Nations Day on the 24th October!
