Taking the Pulse of Family Farmers
By Erica Oakley, Associate, Humanitas Global

Each year on October 16th, the world observes World Food Day, a day to highlight the challenges and achievements made in the fight to end global hunger, malnutrition and poverty. This year—because it is the International Year of Family Farming—the theme for World Food Day is focused on the important role family farmers, big and small, play as local, regional and international leaders in feeding the world and stewarding natural resources.

To spur the conversation around family farming in North America, Humanitas Global and Food Tank in collaboration with the World Food Day Network are "taking the pulse" of current and former family farmers through a brief survey. The findings will be used in advocacy and awareness efforts in collaboration with the United Nation's Food and Agriculture Organization to support World Food Day held annually on October 16.

The survey can be found here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/familyfarming. We ask that you respond by Wednesday, October 1, 2014.

We hope that you will participate in the survey and share with your friends, family and broader network. Please email Erica at oakleye@humanitasglobal.com with any questions.
