The World Food Day is usually been marked around the world on the 16th of October every year by organisations that are concerned with agriculture and food security. The date was chosen, because it was the day the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations was founded in 1945. The theme for this year’s celebration was “Change the future of Migration.
