World Food Day, October 16th, 2012
October 16th , 2012 is World food Day, I invite everyone reading this blog to join the global movement to end hunger. Be part of the solution , take action in your community and around the world.
With that said I would like to bring to your attention that while we celebrate World Food Day on the 16th, we need to think about the quality of our food. What is in our food? Is is healthy? What kind of pesticide was used? Is it Genetically engineered?
Many organizations are on the forefront with their message of not only ending world hunger but the issue of nutrition as well. the ONE organization’s message is “Put Nutrition on the Global Agenda”. For more details click
GORTA’s message is “Make Hunger History”. The Gorta World Food Day Conference will be on October 16th at 9:00 am in Dublin. If you are in that part of the world more details available at
One of the options also is for you to grow your own food then you will know for sure the quality and nutritional information of what you will be consuming. Farmers markets with local organic foods are everywhere now days as well as community and school gardens. There are many businesses with the mission to teach you how to grow great and healthy foods such as Edible Gardening with Karin visit them at or Dylan Terry at “Ready-to-grow Gardens visit them at and Earth Learning, visit them at
Finally Operation Green Leaves has sponsored many school gardens and works with children to not only teach them where food comes from but also teach them about nutrition and the cultural aspect of food.
