World Food Day

Today (Oct 16) is World Food Day (USA). I searched ADRA for articles and events, but only found this short post in Australia — Anti-Poverty Week:

Including World Food Day (October 16) and international Day for the Eradication of Poverty (October 17) this week is your chance to stand up for those in need. Visit www.antipovertyweek.org.au for more information and resources.

  1. We had a month long travelling campaign (Yatra) that went to every major town of our state (Jharkhand, India). It was to inform the people about the pending Food Security Bill in the parliament and to put pressure on them to pass it. The travelling campaign ended at one of our industrial / mining towns called Jamshedpur. A similar campaign where held in other states too under the banner of the ‘Right to Food’ campaign. http://www.righttofoodindia.org/index.html

    Wow, that is great. I looked over the website briefly. You’ve got your hands full! May God empower the movement! Thank you for sharing it with us.
