The World Food Day USA and Canada network extends a sincerest congratulations to you for a successful 2013 campaign!

Your savvy social media skills and participation in #WFD2013 events pushed the World Food Day movement to the forefront of media attention.   From hosting or attending Oxfam Dinners to marching in CROP hunger walks, you made this World Food Day a day of activism, inspiration, and hope for the anti-hunger movement.

Still #hungerto do more?

Though World Food Day may be over,  the fight to end hunger will not cease. There are many more events coming up in the next few weeks that will further our mission. Check out the EVENTS page for activities going on near you! The page is continuing to grow, so if you don’t see something near you, be sure to check in again in the coming days.

World Food Day made national and international headlines this year, with major publications drawing attention to the food security movement and covering large-scale World Food Day events.
