Sharing Hope

It’s time to grow our global community with kindness. World Food Day 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations. And this year, World Food Day is calling for global solidarity to help everyone everywhere to recover from the COVID-19 crisis.

Hunger: The Facts

  • How we grow, nourish, and sustain may look different here in the United States and around the world, but the fight against hunger is the same. Food is about more than energy. It’s about sharing, loving, and learning.
  • Preserving access to safe and nutritious food is and will continue to be an essential part of the response to COVID-19, particularly for the world’s poorest and most vulnerable who are hardest hit by the pandemic and will be most affected by resulting economic shocks.
  • If our food systems are not transformed, undernourishment and malnutrition will greatly increase by 2050. This could increase more if there is further deterioration in income inequality, employment or basic access to services.

Food Chains and Farmers

Food is the essence of life and the bedrock of our cultures and communities. But many of the farmers who make food possible around the world don’t have the technologies we take for granted. Smallholder farmers need greater access to finance, training, innovation and technology to improve their livelihoods. It’s time to make food systems more resilient so they can survive the next challenge, by bringing innovation, digitalization and e-commerce into the hands of the world’s food chain workers and smallholder farmers, who produce about 80 percent of the world’s food.
