Tip of the Day
World Food Day
Today is World Food Day, designed to increase awareness and alleviate hunger everywhere. The theme this year is: "Cooperatives: Key to Ending Hunger."
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recognize that hunger continues to be a worldwide problem of staggering proportions. Our position paper Nutrition Security in Developing Nations: Sustainable Food, Water, and Health states that access to adequate amounts of safe, nutritious and culturally appropriate food at all times is a fundamental human right.
To make an impact on this important day and every day, contact cooperatives in your area to see if you can get involved in events they have planned, or consider helping those in need by donating to a local pantry, spearheading a food drive in your community, or launch a virtual food drive.
