World Food Day

Today marks the 35th anniversary of World Food Day. World Food Day commemorates the establishing of the Food and Agricultural Administration of the United Nations. Every year, North American activists come together to declare our commitment to eradicate hunger in our lifetime. Here at STAND, we hope to use today to raise awareness of the significant and brutal effect that hunger and food insecurity can have within conflict. From the impending famine in South Sudan, to drastic funding shortfalls for the World Food Programme’s work in Syria and with Syrian refugees, food insecurity is all too often an unfortunate reality of conflicts and mass atrocities. To learn more about how food insecurity affects each of our conflict areas, check out the list of further learning for Burma, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sudan, South Sudan, and Syria.
