World Food Day

World Food Day

“Food and nutritional security are the foundations of a decent life, a sound education and, indeed, the achievement of all the Millennium Development Goals.  Over the past two years, volatile food prices, the economic crisis, climate change and conflict have led to a dramatic and unacceptable rise in the number of people who cannot rely on getting the food they need to live, work and thrive.  For the first time in history, more than one billion people are hungry.”   – UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
