Think about food and eat better this November.
World Food Day is held internationally every year on October 16th. It was established in 1979 by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). The official World Food Day theme, announced each spring by the FAO, is “Agricultural cooperatives – key to feeding the world”. World Food Day is a chance for communities in Newfoundland and Labrador to celebrate food and raise awareness of food security issues in our province. This year for World Food Day 9 events are happening in 8 communities across the province in October!
The Food Security Network and Oxfam are partnering up once again to host this popular event on October 19th! All proceeds from the 2012 World Food Day Movie & Meal will go towards supporting food security initiatives in the province that are working to ensure access to healthy food for all. The Meal: A three-course meal made mostly of local ingredients showcasing fish, vegetables, & fruit of Newfoundland & Labrador. The Movie: END OF THE LINE, an eye-opening documentary looking at the impact of overfishing on oceans www.endoftheline.com
