On the 16th of October is World Food Day – an annual day of action against hunger. Every year on that day, people around the world come together for a common cause: to contribute to the eradication of hunger. It all began in 1945 in Quebec with the creation of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to raise awareness and engage people in the fight against hunger.
Based on FAO’s research, 805 million people, one in nine worldwide, live with chronic hunger. 60% of these are women, while almost 5 million children under the age of 5 die of malnutrition-related causes every year. In honour of this day, food ordering app hellofood launches “You Say. We Give”, a week-long campaign to encourage collective efforts and be part of this global movement.
