Nearly 40 years ago, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) designed the 16th of October as the World Food Day with the aim of to raise awareness of society about the world food problem and promote solidarity against hunger, malnutrition and poverty.
Numbers confirm that the number of people suffering from hunger int the world is increasing, reaching 821 million people worldwide, that is, one in nine. In addition, FAO warns that more than 150 million children suffer from stunting due to the difficulty access to proper nutrition.
As you know, one of the causes that we support is to end hunger and malnutrition in the world, one of the Sustainable Developmnt Goals for 2030. There are many companies that through our widget contribute to eradicate famine in the world.
