World Food Day Is No Food Day For 1 In 6 People

October 15 was World Food Day, but as World Food Programme (WFP) Executive Director Josette Sheeran said - World Food Day is actually No Food Day for almost one out of every six people around the world this year. As the number of hungry people reaches record levels, the UN WFP called on the world to remember the more than one billion urgently hungry people with inadequate access to food.

In the video below Ms Sheeran says that our challenge is to turn No Food Day back into World Food Day for the hundreds of millions without food on their table tonight.
