World Food Day 2019

FOOD 2030: Nourishing people and nurturing the planet through sustainable healthy diets for all 16 October 2019


World Food Day 2019 is calling for action across sectors to make sustainable healthy diets affordable and available to everyone. This year, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations,
the European Commission, the European Economic, and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions are inviting you to celebrate the day and discuss the cross-sectoral role of nutrition with a focus on obesity at local, national, EU and global level. This World Food Day event is joining up with FOOD 2030, linking the EU Research and Innovation context to the global campaign. Providing an evidence-base to policymaking and delivering solutions with co-benefits is more than ever key to catalyze systems change. World Food Day is celebrated on 16th October in up to 150 countries across the world, making it one of the most celebrated days in the UN calendar.
