Today, October 16 is World Food Day. This was established by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), an agency of the United Nations in 1979.
It is meant to be a day of action against hunger. Away from picking a day to focus on hunger in the world, leaders around the world should do more to reduce conflicts that make it impossible for people to grow their own food. This would be a good first step.
