Pope repeats call to divert funds from military to fighting hunger

World Food Day Ireland to contribute €1 million to UN conference on food systems

On the other hand, Pope Francis said that tons of food are thrown away, and after pointing out the impossibility of remaining insensitive or paralyzed in front of this reality, he pointed out that "we are all responsible".

World Food Day is celebrated in many countries around the world and focuses on seven different thematic areas depending on each year, forests, agriculture, livestock, food loss and waste, natural resources, fisheries, and food systems. I wish you all a memorable and meaningful World Food Day!

"Our country is very small in terms of its land size while our current population is 165 million or around 17 crore".

Today we face serious challenges, which require global efforts.

FAO Director-General Qu Dongyu put FAO's role into a historical context.

"With the novel coronavirus spreading rapidly, the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on global agricultural and food markets are becoming increasingly apparent", said the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.

"The world needs a better way to deal with hunger", said Dr. Charles Owubah, CEO, Action Against Hunger. "Together; Our action, our future".

"There is a possibility of starvation as the world got stuck due to the Covid-19 pandemic".

Since the inception of the day, several themes have been chosen annually to bring attention to hunger and food and its effect on the lives of people worldwide.

The event marks the highest priority accorded by the government to agriculture and nutrition and is a testament of the resolve to completely eliminate hunger, undernourishment and malnutrition. The body calls to cheer the "food heroes" on this date, who are all the farmers and agriculture workers who have made sure food continues to reach people even in the unprecedented times. Invest in food security and rural development. Food was the subject of a series of documentaries aired by state broadcaster RAI, while two large supermarket chains launched a food collection drive to help feed the country's poorest.

Going down the memory lane, Sheikh Hasina said that the country had food deficiency of 24 lakh metric tonnes when the Awami League came to power in 1996, but the country witnessed a surplus food production of 26 lakh metric tonnes when her government completed its five-year tenure.

Conte also congratulated the FAO on its big anniversary, saying Italy was "proud" to host the organization and that it would continue to work together with FAO to tackle hard problems related to food, hunger, and other issues.

While we can all agree that cutting out processed foods is one method to living a healthier, fuller life, it's important to note that not everyone has this same luxury.

Mentioning that the country has faced cyclone and flood amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the Prime Minister said, "The people of Bangladesh is very fearless and they have the ability to face any situation".
