WORLD FOOD DAY; 16TH OCTOBER

The UN General Assembly 1979 pronounced 16th October of every year to be the World Food Day (WFD). It is also the same date when FAO was founded in Quebec, Canada in 1945.  Thus World food Day is a twin celebration whereby the International community and National governments reflect on issues of food security, hunger, malnutrition, and poverty and FAO commemorates the day it was founded and achievements made.

Uganda first celebrated WFD in 1982 and will join the rest of the world to celebrate her 37th World Food Day (WFD) on Monday 16th October 2017.

 

Venue will be communicated soon.
