World Food Day 2022
World Food Day 2022 is being marked in a year with multiple global challenges including the ongoing pandemic, conflict, climate change, rising prices and international tensions. All of this is affecting global food security.
It’s time to work together and create a better, more sustainable future for all; where everyone, everywhere has regular access to enough nutritious food.
What can you do as an individual?
We, as consumers, must act to ensure that no one is left behind. We can change food systems for the better by being more responsible and showing greater empathy in our choices and actions.
- Buy and consume only what you need! Respect the farmers who produce your food, the resources used to make it and the people who go without. Effective meal-planning, proper food storage, creative leftover recipes and composting can all contribute to a more sustainable future where food systems are inclusive and work with nature, and not against it.
- Choose local foods that travel short distances from farm to table, limit consumption of resource-intensive foods and eat seasonal fruits and vegetables, which often require fewer chemical inputs.
- Show your support for inclusive value chains by shopping at a Farmers’ Market and looking out for labels on food items indicating support for smallholder producers.
