World Food Day 2019: “OUR ACTIONS ARE OUR FUTURE: HEALTHY DIETS FOR A #ZEROHUNGER WORLD”
This year’s WFD echoes messages raised in the UN’s State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World (SOFI 2019) and calls for action to make healthy diets available and affordable to all, with the slogan “Our actions are our future.
