It is that time of year when World Food Day is celebrated. 16th of October, 2020 is a big red-letter day for the world because it also marks the 75th anniversary of the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations, which actively functions as an agent of awareness about hunger and food shortages in the world. The FAO instated World Food Day in 1979 and the 16th of October was assigned as the day to create and promote awareness about a huge problem that the whole world faces – hunger and malnutrition. This year, the issue of hunger is even more imperative due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Millions have suffered because of poverty and loss of gainful employment and 2020 has seen many more deaths due to hunger. So, more than 150 nations will participate in spreading the word about world hunger and how we tackle it.
Theme for World Food Day 2020
In 2020, we can contribute from anywhere and become ‘Food Heroes’ by propagating a lifestyle of choosing healthy food whenever we can and promote agriculture. In India, agriculture is the chief occupation for about two-thirds of the country. We owe it to our farmers to buy local grain and choose ‘Make In India’ products. The Honourable Prime Minister’s ‘Vocal For Local’ needs to come into full effect as we strive to reduce and eventually end hunger, one country at a time.
The FAO has chosen this year’s theme as “Grow, Nourish, Sustain. Together. – Our Actions are Our Future.” With a huge focus on coming together and helping communities and helping create a sustainable food system, the FAO is working tirelessly towards bringing governments to offer aid and support. QNET India has eternally advocated for healthy living and an active lifestyle and those ideologies are even more evident in their Nutriplus range of products. QNET India has always maintained a ‘Healthy Living Every Day’ position and it is relevant on this occasion, too. On World Food Day 2020, we take a look at what healthy foods QNET India has to offer in our country.
