Description

The objectives of World Food Day are to:

  • encourage attention to agricultural food production and to stimulate national, bilateral, multilateral and non-governmental efforts to this end;
  • encourage economic and technical cooperation among developing countries;
  • encourage the participation of rural people, particularly women and the least privileged categories, in decisions and activities influencing their living conditions;
  • heighten public awareness of the problem of hunger in the world;
  • promote the transfer of technologies to the developing world; and
  • strengthen international and national solidarity in the struggle against hunger, malnutrition and poverty and draw attention to achievements in food and agricultural development.

The 2015 World Food Day theme is

Social Protection and agriculture: breaking the cycle of rural poverty


Social Protection has been chosen as the theme of this year’s World Food Day (WFD) to highlight its importance in reducing rural poverty and granting access to food or means to buy food.

Social protection can be defined as a range of solutions, often combined with each others, —such as work opportunities, provision of food, money and services— that are designed to support the vulnerable and help the poor in society move out of hunger and poverty.

To help you get acquainted with the 2015 theme, they have prepared two short briefs that you can read for background information, ideas and suggestions. 

The World Food Day Poster Contest is one of the oldest FAO outreach projects involving students across the globe.

Since its launch, the WFD poster contest has inspired thousands of children and young people like you to put their creativity and talents to work and figure out ways to fight poverty and hunger in their countries
