World Food Day 2012 - The Network of Hunger Fighters
By Amy McMillen, Partnerships and Outreach Coordinator, Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations

World Food Day was first recognized in 1981, and since then, the momentum it generates for ending hunger has only grown. This year, the important day is grounded in an exciting, reinvigorated World Food Day network. Each organization in the network brings something special, and working together, they ensure that the visibility and impact of World Food Day reaches new heights.

Oxfam America will bring thousands together at hundreds of World Food Day dinners across the country to have a discussion about our global food system. Church World Service, the National Association of Evangelicals and Islamic Relief will join in the conversation and look at the questions through a lens of faith.  Buddhist Global Relief will Walk to Feed the Hungry in seven US cities, and hundreds will participate in Crop Walks organized by local churches and community groups across the country.   Stop Hunger Now will package over 2 million meals for school feeding programs and emergency assistance programs around the world. Students in elementary, middle and high schools will grow lettuce and make the connection between science and ending hunger using the EarthBox for World Food Day Kit.  University students will ask themselves Why Care? to get to the heart of what motivates each of us to finally once and for all end hunger in our lifetime.   

On October 16 join the global movement to end hunger, and be part of the solution.  The growing World Food Day network is deepening the impact of World Food Day, but ultimately, it takes people like you to make it happen. It must be a priority for all of us in our daily lives.  On October 16, what will you do to end hunger

Tell us what you decide and how we can help you get involved in this movement.
