World food day.

Happy world food day everyone!! Created to honour the date of the founding of the united nations food and agricultural organization in 1945, it is an international day celebrated every year on the 16th of October. Having the theme“safe food now for a healthy tomorrow” this year, it is celebrated by many organizations concerned with raising awareness on the issue of food security and hunger.

Food as we all know is taken by all living organisms to provide the nutrients required for the continuous metabolic reactions taking place in the body. When taken in the right proportion, in the form of a balanced diet which consists of all six classes of food, it encourages normal growth and development of the body. Lack of some food substances can lead to malnutrition deficiency and other nutritional diseases in the body.

According to the WHO, more than 2.3 billion people lacked year round access to adequate food in 2020. Now more than ever is the time to raise awareness on food security. No one should be deprived of a healthy meal nor should hunger be used as a weapon for conflict or war. So take out time today or any other day, to give out to anyone that’s in need of good food. One act of kindness can change a persons life forever.

“Good food is the foundation of genuine happiness”.

– Auguste Escoffier.

Happy world food day everyone and stay safe🍜🙏.
