2021 World Food Day Fund

About

The theme of World Food Day 2021 is "our actions are our future". World Food Day celebrates the global progress made toward zero hunger and highlights the world’s commitment to ending world hunger by 2030. Celebrated annually on 16 October, World Food Day promotes global awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger, and to highlight the need to ensure healthy diets for all. Collective action across 150 countries is what makes World Food Day one of the most celebrated days of the United Nations’ calendar. Hundreds of events and outreach activities bring together governments, businesses, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), the media, and general public. They promote worldwide awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and for the need to ensure healthy diets for all. #WorldFoodDay 2021 will be marked a second time while countries around the world deal with the widespread effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic. It’s a time to look into the future we need to build together. Bright Funds created the 2021 World Food Day Fund so that you can support the work of great organizations addressing hunger in worldwide. #WorldFoodDay #FoodHeroes fao.org/world-food-day
